it worked really well! Originally was going with lime, to cut through the richness (these are the ideas in food doughnuts, so a batch has two pounds of butter and eight eggs), but forgot to buy citrus at the store. So I thought about how acidic hibiscus is and powdered five grams of the dried before mixing it with 40 grams of water. In another bowl I mixed 280g of sugar (powdered in a blender), 40 grams of whole milk, and one to two grams of salt. I didn’t want to accidentally curdle the milk. I poured the infusion into the glaze; all but the biggest unground pieces went in (as you can see from the picture). Really pleased with the result! Faintly fruity, in one of those fun, mysterious ways (since how often do you taste hibiscus with this much sugar). Definitely going to add this to the rotation. Kind of want to do a hibiscus curd, now. Or maybe a hibiscus ganache for truffles?

Fried off the rest of the doughnut dough today. I'm calling them jimbits :D

 

Currently sitting in a bag of powdered sugar while I figure out what to do with them.

They look  like individualistic XL donut holes. Interior shot maybe?  No treat needy neighbor's doorsteps?

I'll dig one out of the bag in a little bit and cut it open; the shot's just close, though; they're smaller than golf balls.

My standard fudgy brownie recipe -- using Valrhona unsweetened chocolate. Not as rich or dense as the Paul Young brownie recipe but still very rich and chocolatey.

I’ve definitely thought of that, though not tried it yet.  There is a Mexican drink called agua de jamaica which along with hibiscus flowers has cinnamon. I’ve thought an agua de jamaica bon bons would be delicious. It’s on my list.

The jamaica agua frescas I see are usually plain though I'v seen it with a more spicy anise tilt (star anise is good) often served as a warm tea..

Maybe a hibiscus cocoa butter shell and a cinnamon ganache. Or, well, I think we could work some pineapple in there with them, too.

 

I made a hibiscus creme pat tonight. Pretty good. Managed to curdle the milk at one point (hibiscus is soooo acidic) but vitamixed it smooth again. As you might expect the custard dulled the flavours substantially to the point where I think you'd have to add rather a lot to really get some flavour out of it.

More quarantine snack packs for coworkers and neighbours. Caramels (half salted browns, half coffee) wrapped tonight; doughs in the fridge for baking and frying fresh tomorrow morning.

Also practiced my macarons today; I think I’m finally pleased. These will get a schmear of the blackberry ganache I have setting up in the fridge
