Wild Hibiscus Flower Company
Our cooks went "wild" with our most recent challenge! Our newest sponsor, the Wild Hibiscus Flower Company, generously sent each cook a jar of Wild Hibiscus Flowers in Syrup. Each cook was also sent their choice of amazing flower extracts.
The Wild Hibiscus Flower Company was founded in Australia by Lee Etherington in 1999 with the creation of their flagship product, Wild Hibiscus Flowers in Syrup. It was by chance at a more than lively dinner party one night that Lee, his partner Jocelyn, and their guests dropped a flower into a glass of champagne. Watching in amazement as the flower started to unfurl and look particularly special in the glass, the idea was sparked by Lee to create the first bottled hibiscus flowers in syrup.
Lee devised proven techniques in farming and production and a natural preservative - a mix of spring water and Australian cane sugar - that keeps the flowers perfectly candied and ready to eat for more than 36 months.
Our cooks went above and beyond with their creativity using these very special products! If you want to learn more about the Wild Hibiscus Flower Company, be sure to follow them on Facebook, Pinterest and Twitter.
