F.A.Q.


home > recipes > beverages > karkanji
This refreshing drink can be made entirely from plants grown in Chad. With the heat as strong as it is there, karkanji satisfies thirst at little cost. This is also used as a product of many a home-based business, and sold at the edge of a school, business or sporting event by the glassful. Some say it is good for colds, runny noses and flu symptoms... Ingredients: 1 large handful (about 1 1/2 cups) of whole hibiscus flowers (available at most health food stores in Western countries) 1 1/2 to 2 1/2 cups sugar 1/2 cup ginger root, or 1/4 cup bars of cinnamon mixed with 1/4 cup cloves (optional) 1. Add 1/2 to 1 gallon water to a saucepan. Drop hibiscus flowers on to the top of the water until the surface is mostly covered with flowers. Add ginger root or cinnamon and cloves, if desired. 2. Bring to a boil. 3. Once you have a running boil, remove from full heat or turn stove down to a simmer, and cover for ten minutes. 4. Add the sugar according to taste, mix in, then let simmer for five more minutes. 5. Remove from heat, and let cool/simmer for at least one hour. Add ice, and serve. May also be served hot, soon after the sugar is added.
