When Rosella is in season and the fruits are plentiful we quickly utilize the bounty of fruits provided for making jellies and desserts. They have a tart flavor with a raspberry/rhubarb/plum quality when used fresh and most importantly they retain this flavor when they are dried. This drying process means that you can use the fruit powder all year round not just when the fruits are in season. The powder works well in either sweet or savory dishes and can be combined with the dried Rosella sepal to vary the taste and texture of the dishes you are creating. The powder can be sprinkled on lamb, pork or game and we found it sensational sprinkled on steak. Use it in sauces, jams, sprinkled over ice cream and in pastries and as food colouring. A quick refreshing drink can be made by adding the powder (to your taste) into a glass of cold water and/or ice. Add some honey to taste if you find it too tart.
