A Super Tasty spread made from hibiscus (rosella) flowers (the same as those used in our Wild Hibiscus Flowers in Syrup for champagne). A bright crimson, very chunky jam with a tart flavour similar to raspberry and rhubarb with a whopping 60% rosella content.
Rosella Jam is a Queensland traditional favourite. These days it is very hard to find unless you are driving around rural Queensland where you can find it at farmers markets and roadside stalls.
Did you know that we also make Rosella Gin ?!? It is an extremely smooth and super tasty crimson gin distilled with fresh ginger. Curious? You can learn more by clicking here: ROSELLA GIN 750ml.
Flavour is similar to raspberry and rhubarb, tart and certainly one to get those taste buds humming in the morning.
Rosella Jam is made from our flowers which are too large or small or broken for serving in a glass of sparkling wine. They are a special genetic variety which we developed over 15 years ago which is super productive and has much more flavour than the standard Australian variety.
Memorable Quotes: "What! You have Rosella Jam, How Wonderful! I haven't had it since I was a kid, here in Sydney they think I'm crazy when I ask for Rosella Jam, no-one knows what it is!" One ex-pat Queensland lady at the Royal Easter Show.
Use on fresh scones, ice cream or toast and anywhere you would like to add some super tasty raspberry or rhubarb highlights.
