Jamaican sorrel is sun-dried sorrel (Hibiscus sabdariffa or Jamaican sorrel)that makes a strong refreshing drink that is frequently consumed in the Caribbean.
Seep dried sorrel along with bits of cinnamon sticks and cloves in hot boiled water just to cover it overnight or boil with spices and water to make drink quicker.
Sweeten with sugar to taste and serve with ice. Grated ginger can be added for a sorrel drink as well as some rum for an Island flavor.
Makes about 1 to 2 gallons of drink depending on how strong you like your sorrel drink.
The sorrel drink has always been a part of the Jamaican food and culture with most people consuming it during the Christmas season.
Other foods such as the oh so popular Christmas cake (rum cake), gungo rice and peas, and others are also consumed mostly in the Christmas season. Therefore, it is more than likely to be accompanied by a tasty sorrel drink.
