Its origins are not clear, but Hibiscus Sabdariffa is claimed to be native to West and Eastern Africa, South East Asia and North Eastern India. Hibiscus Sabdariffa is a species of hibiscus, and is used for the production of fibre and as an infusion in many cultures.
Known most commonly across the Caribbean as "sorrel", "roselle", "saril" or "flor de Jamaica," this vivid drink is commonly seen at Christmas time when the petals are steeped in hot water then infused with spices such as cinnamon and cloves and served with lots of ice. Our Woodford and Warner Sorrel Jelly also uses the bright red petals of the Hibiscus Sabdariffa fruit as a base, and delivers a sweet, tangy taste that some say is similar to raspberries.
Woodford & Warner Sorrel Jelly is 100% natural, free from any artificial additives, preservatives and animal products. This jelly is the recipient of the 2016 Great Taste award and is infused with the traditional flavours of the Caribbean including cinnamon and cloves. This jelly is a game changer and is a welcome addition to cheese and charcuterie boards. With game season beginning in September, why not pair strong flavours like guinea fowl or venison with this elegant rich preserve. Remember a little goes a long way.
