Now, I use whatever I have in my pantry. Some times like in this recipe, I throw in a red- coloured powder drink concentrate. This helps to enhance the red colour that oozes out of the leaves. Enough with my ‘folereology’. Let’s make some… but before then I want you to know that this drink is sometimes colloquially called, “Jesus juice” or “baron de Jesus”. Don’t ask me why.
FOLERE DRINK RECIPE
Prep: 10 mins
Inactive time: 6 hours
Yield: 1 large jar
2 cups of Folere
The peel of one pineapple (optional)
1 sachet of drink concentrate (e.g Kool Aid) and/or sugar to taste
1 teaspoon of flavour of choice (optional)
Put the folere and pineapple peel into a pot and pour in about 6 cups of water.
Use a spoon to push the petals in so they soak well in the water. Bring that to a boil.
After it boils, turn off the fire and let it sit in the pot covered for a good six hours. You could even leave that overnight then you strain it using a colander. Ermmm… the picture showing the strained juice in a jar has vanished. The devil is a laya!
After straining it, sweeten/flavour as desired and chill or pour over ice.
Folere is ready!
