HOW TO DRY HIBISCUS


USE SHARP SCISSORS TO CUT THE STEM.

USE ONLY HIBISCUS FREE OF PESTICIDES.

REMOVE THE STAMENS AND GIVE THE FLOWERS A LIGHT RINSE.

Sun dryingPlace the flowers on a tray in a single layer facing upwards and leave it outside in a sunny spot that is protected from wind. It usually takes about 3 to 5 days for the flowers to dry completely. 

Dehydrator is a faster way to dry the flowers. Place the flowers on the dehydrator trays, making sure that the flowers aren’t touching. Put the lid on the dehydrator and set it to the lowest temperature setting. Check after a few hours and remove them once they’re dry and starting to crumble.

Oven drying Place the flowers on a tray or cookie sheet in a single layer and place it in the oven.Set the oven to the lowest temperature setting and leave the door slightly ajar.Check the flowers every half hour and remove them from the oven when they’re crisp and brittle.
