I received today as a gift a whole bag of Egyptian hibiscus. Suggestions?

Make it into a kambucha!
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.
If the petals are dried, you could powder them in batches in a blade coffee maker until you have 2.5 ox (70 grams powder) and make this popular cake: http://buttersugarflowers...
Apologies for the typos! I meant blade coffee GRINDER, and 2.5 oz.
