Ingredients for the Hibiscus Flowers in Honeycomb Syrup

The honeycomb and the hibiscus flowers are edible!

Both hibiscus flowers and honeycomb are edible and are perfect ingredients to surprise your family and friends this holiday season by preparing candied flowers to enhance the menu.

We enjoy preparing handmade gourmet gifts for my family and friends. Canning is a great preservation technique to prepare and gift homemade food items.

Having recipes like the hibiscus flowers in honeycomb syrup is a good thing. Besides, the hibiscus or “jamaica” flower is a Mexican cuisine favorite.

Preserved hibiscus flowers are an unusual to gift, nontheless a delicacy. We has chosen to cook the flowers using the honeycomb to create a honey syrup.

There are many edible flowers that we can use for special occasions. The holidays are the time when we need new ideas for entertaining at home.

Gifting gourmet gifts allow people to prepare special bites when hosting a party at home without having to cook.

And my recipe for hibiscus flowers in honeycomb syrup is the perfect addition. These flowers are versatile. You can use them for making beautiful appetizers; just stuff with cheese.

The flowers are nice decorations for cupcakes and special desserts. Craft cocktails using the syrup and add a candied flower to champagne or sparkling soda.

Having something special is what makes the holidays such a wonderful time. And with Don Victor Honey, you can certainly prepare many special dishes and use the beautiful jar for canning or give honey as gifts as part of those Christmas baskets you put together.

Don Victor Honey is raw, filtered honey, not processed in any other way. The honeycomb that comes inside the jar is perfectly edible you can pair with cheese for a gourmet experience, add to biscuits, eat as a treat and use on my recipe for hibiscus flowers in honeycomb syrup.

Find Don Victor Honey available al Walmart

And you can find Don Victor Honey at Walmart in the Hispanic products aisle. Honey never goes bad. You can store it on your kitchen counter. If you see your honey is getting some crystallization, this is the natural process. It is not an indicator of spoilage, impurity, age, or quality.

If your honey crystallizes, simply place the honey jar in warm water and stir until the crystals dissolve, or place the honey container into near-boiling water that has been removed from the heat.
