自制玫瑰茄浓缩

玫瑰茄(Roselle),又名洛神花。它适合生长于热带和亚热带地区。记得N年前家家户户门前都有种它。

它的功效能降血压、抗坏血病和利尿的药效。对支气管炎和咳嗽病有缓解作用。它含有丰富的维生素C,有清凉降火、生津止渴的功效。不但如此经常饮用玫瑰茄花茶有助于降低人体血液中的总胆固醇值和甘油三酯值,达到防治心血管疾病的功效。

我姐家门前就种了几颗。以前我们只是会摘了它的花直接煮。所以每次都煮了一大锅,喝不完就放入冰箱。但是觉得这样没那么好。最近姐姐的朋友教她把它煮成浓缩,然后收入冰箱。要喝的时候,只要加点水,加点冰就可以了。觉得这也是个好方法。

今天就试煮了这玫瑰茄浓缩。

先把花瓣剥开
加点柠檬片,加点水。等水滚开后,加入冰糖。要常搅拌,避免焦底沾锅。煮至浓稠。完成!
炎炎的天气,来杯泠泠的饮料,太凉快了吧!

I had a tree in front of our house when I was young. My mother used to boil for us to drink, and I was naive to think that this drink is the same with the Ribena I watched on TV ads. Can I have some to plant at my house?
