I’ve never heard of or seen Roselle (洛神花) before not until when I saw some of my blogger friends who used the fresh Roselle to make into jelly many months back. I was so eager to try this new ingredient at that time but unfortunately I couldn’t get the fresh ones from the market. Just one week ago as I was walking along Bugis Street, I saw a shop in Fu Lu Shou building basement, selling preserved dried Roselle . I was allowed to sample a little and immediately fell in love with it. The Roselle is not only sweet and sour, it is also crunchy and the price is reasonable, around two dollars for 200 gram. Besides snacking, I also added them in the cupcakes. The preserved dried Roselle tasted like dried cranberry in the cupcakes and you can still taste its crunchiness. Don’t you think it is also nice to go with a cup of Roselle tea as well? 🙂
Hope you have a wonderful week ahead!
