In a medium saucepan bring Water (1 1/2 cup) to a simmer. Add
Dried Hibiscus Flowers (3/4 cup)
and bring back to a boil, stirring to soak all the hibiscus. Turn off heat and allow to steep for 10 to 15 minutes, stirring once or twice.
Strain through a fine mesh sieve, allowing hibiscus to drain naturally without squeezing or pushing on it.
Return liquid to the pot and add
Frozen Strawberries (3 cups)
along with any juice and
Granulated Sugar (1 cup)
. Bring to a boil and stir to dissolve sugar. Reduce heat to a steady boil and allow to cook, uncovered for 15 to 20 minutes, mashing berries with a fork or back of a wooden spoon to help them break down.
Corn Starch (1 Tbsp)
with Water (1 Tbsp) until dissolved. Add to syrup along with
Pure Vanilla Extract (1 tsp)
, stirring constantly until mixture is fully combined and has returned to a boil.
Strain through a fine mesh sieve and allow to cool to room temperature, then cool completely in the refrigerator to reach full thickness.
