Here is a close up shot of the flowers. I bought these in the market for about $5 EC or about $2 US.
To make sorrel:
Put the sorrel and any spices you want to use (I used bay leaves, cloves, cinnamon and fresh ginger) in a pot. Cover with two few inches of water. Bring to a boil, then cover and simmer for 15-20 minutes. Add brown sugar to taste and let the flowers and spices continue to steep overnight (if you can wait.)
Strain the juice and enjoy. You can also add some rum to make it extra festive :)
