Yield: 4-1/2 cups syrup

  • 4  cups  water
  • 3  cups  sugar
  • 2  cups  dried hibiscus flowers or 8 Red Zinger herb tea bags

  • 4  cups  blueberries

1. In a large saucepan combine water and sugar. Bring to boiling, stirring to dissolve sugar. Add hibiscus flowers or Red Zinger herb tea bags. Reduce heat. If using flowers, boil gently for 40 to 50 minutes or until syrup is reduced to 3-1/2 cups. If using tea bags, boil gently for 5 minutes. Remove tea bags with a slotted spoon.
