Strawberry and Hibiscus soup


I'm becoming a bit of a fan of fruit soups, a refreshing, healthy, bright and vibrant option for dessert. Serve them with a sablé biscuit, a scoop of yoghurt, a meringue. Strawberry and hibiscus complement each other and the fresh ginger adds a little heat. Drinking 3 cups of Hibiscus tea a day is proven to lower blood pressure so pump up the hibiscus in your diet by any means possible. This recipe can be found on the Good Food Channel site here.
If this blog seems a little quiet of late it's because I'm writing a book on afternoon teas. I'm also styling and taking all the pictures for it, so it's very time consuming. I've come to the conclusion that writing a baking book is far harder than any other sort of cookbook. There's no making it up. You have to be precise so I'm testing each recipe two or three times. I'm a night baker, I'm often up till midnight, shuffling baking trays around my oven. 
 I have many blog posts stacked up in draft but they require more research before publishing. Coming up: a blog post on food photography, how to improve it.

I would love to hear what you think of this post! I try to reply to every comment (if there is a delay, I am probably away from an internet connection or abroad)
