And so what are these? We might well ask, as they’re not likely to be seen growing in these colder climes. A friend in Queensland sent them to me – rosella flowers! And she went to such trouble to be sure they went through the proper procedures, were quarantined as they should be. How kind was that?
What a treat! I have a whole 8 kilos to play with. I think that I’ll pass on chutney as I don’t want to overpower their delicate flavour. However, I have jam on the go, as well as two jam pans full of cordial syrup in its initial stages. Apparently it is also good mixed with just a little balsamic as a sauce for game meats.
So many thanks to Katrina. Some rosella preserves coming your way very soon.
