2 ounces dried hibiscus flower (flor de Jamaica), about 4 cups
5 cups water
1 cups sugar
1-inch piece ginger, peeled
1 cinnamon sticks
Place all ingredients in a 6-quart pot and bring to a boil over medium heat. Cook for about 15 minutes. Strain and allow to cool. Store in a large glass container, loosely covered with a piece of cloth, and allow to ferment in a dark place for about 3 days for a mildly fermented drink.
