Sophia's Hibiscus Jello
Sophia's hibiscus jello is a delicious light way to finish a romantic meal. Sophia's hibiscus jello made with hibiscus syrup captures the sweet and tart flavour, the floral and fruity bouquet, and the ruby red colour — the colour of sexual attraction — of the exotic hibiscus blooms. My recipe is very easy and quick, and yet Sophia's hibiscus jello is a majestic Valentine's Day dessert; hibiscus is considered an aphrodisiac herb that boosts libido. My hibiscus jello recipe does not contain gelatin or artificial food colours. Sophia's hibiscus jello is vegan, gluten-free, and alcohol-free.

  1. Put the water, hibiscus syrup and brown sugar into a large saucepan. Stir the mixture and spoon a small amount of the mixture (4-5 tbsps.) in a bowl, set aside. Set the saucepan on medium heat. Stir the mixture and let it come to the boil.
  2. Add the agar-agar into the bowl and stir well until it has dissolved. Pour the agar-agar mixture into the saucepan, stirring until completely blended. Simmer for about 2' and remove from heat.
  3. Pour the jello into shot glasses (if you wish to make alcohol-free jello shots), or serving bowls or glasses. Refrigerate to set.

Agar-agar is derived from red seaweed. It is a vegan and vegetarian substitute for gelatin, that helps thicken foods.
