Today’s Random: Flowers In The Espresso Maker

HibiscusTeaCloseI had a thought: if my cheap second-hand espresso maker can extract flavor from coffee, I bet it can do the same with other things.  Above is the second infusion from a batch of dried hibiscus flower, nearly as strong as the first.  The result was flavorful, just a touch of sugar or honey and the refreshing hibiscus flavor pops.

Tomorrow or next week, I may try lavender or chamomile around bedtime.

I may try other things.  Don’t ask me to try it with bacon or anything equally silly.  I still have some limits.
