Take a bunch of it and heat it in a simple syrup (sugar/water) in a pan. Let it cool, strain it, and then use it in cocktails or toss with fresh fruit and mint for a simple dessert.

Like the ones they sell at Trader Joe's?

I would play around with strawberry-hibiscus or cranberry-hibiscus scones. Or jam, simple syrup, tea, ice cream, cake, cocktails.

Merrill wrote about the hibiscus in syrup last summer, and includes a nice margarita recipe: http://tmagazine.blogs...

Karkaday (as the hibiscus infusion is called in Egyptian Arabic) is a very popular drink in Egypt, with or without sugar, served both hot and cold.
