If you been at Mexico you will know what does chamoy means. The taste is a little sour, a little sweet, a little spicy (don’t trust on the spicy, I am Mexican). These days Houston has been very hot and it amazing how the mother nature support us in this process. Watermelon is seasonal and gosh it is so fresh specially when I froze it. So find this easy and delicious recipe for you, your friends, your kids, your kid’s friend… you name it.
Recipe for the Chamoy
- One cup of hibiscus flowers
- One cup of dry Apricots
- One cup of dry prunes
- The juice of one orange
- Two cups of water
- Place in a pan the water, hibiscus flowers, apricots, prunes. Heat for 10 minutes and remove from the stove.
- Blend the hibiscus flowers, apricots and prunes with half of the water you use to “cook” the ingredients. Be careful of not adding too much water.
- Place the mixture in a container and add the juice of the orange and cayenne. Some recipes suggested to add sugar and the juice of one lemon at this moment. In my experience, I didn’t need them.
