How To Make Roselle Juice

10 04 2010

This is how we make our yummy roselle juice from my own roselle plants:

  • First we need to plant the roselle from roselle seeds.

  • Then we need to wait for a few months until it grow bigger and bigger.

  • After a few month, the roselle starts to have flowers.

  • Later they become fruits.

  • Pluck the ripe fruits.

  • Wash them until clean.

  • Let them dry.

  • Cut them into small pieces.

  • Put them in a pot.

  • Add water and sugar.

    Boil the roselle pieces

  • Boil them.

  • Blend the roselle pieces.

I love roselle juice very much.

Roselle juice-looks yummy and very healthy too

It is better to make our own roselle juice because some people add artificial colouring, artificial flavouring and preservatives to the juice that they sell in supermarkets.

Homemade roselle juice from my own plants is very tasty and rich in vitamin C.

It is a healthy drink.

So I have to plant more roselle 🙂

Planting our own fruits and vegetables is good.





Roselle Picking

9 04 2010

Now I have three roselle plants.

They are very big and healthy.

I planted them from Rosie’s seeds.

Rosie was my old roselle plant.

It died a long time ago.


My roselle plants have a lot of fruits.

Today I picked 8 fruits from my roselle plant.

The ripe fruits are maroon in colour.

Roselle tastes very, very, very, very, very, very, very sour.

Before they become fruits they were flowers.

The flowers are big, pink and beautiful.


The roselle flower looks like hibiscus.

But hibiscus has a long style in the middle of the flower.


After the flowers fall, the fruits grow.

We can make roselle juice using the fruits.

Roselle juice is very tasty.

It is also a healthy drink.

It is rich in vitamin C and has a natural red colour.

Roselle picking is fun 🙂

And I love apple picking too.






Fungi

Fungi (fun-guy) are multi-cell plant like organisms.

That means fungi are made by many cells.

Fungi are different from plants because fungi cannot make their own food.

They take their food from plants, animals and human.

Fungi live in damp and warm places.

Athlete Foot Is A Fungi Infection

Athlete foot and ringworm are caused by fungi infection.

Animals can get ringworm too.

Fungi can make human, animals and plants sick.

Fungi grew on my roselle plant and killed it.

Some fungi are poisonous but some are not.

Not all fungi are bad.

We can eat some fungi like mushroom.

Mushrooms are delicious and good for us.

Anyway some mushroom are poisonous.

Yeast is a type of fungi.

We use yeast to make pizza dough and bread.

A type of yeast that is used to make bread under a microscope

We also use fungi in the fermentation of soy sauce.





My 7th Birthday

13 02 2010

Today is my birthday.

I got 35 presents from my parents and big sisters.

I got two sets of ‘Assembly Fun’ – a Helicopter and a Forklift, a set of Hot Wheels track and cars, a blue Hot Wheels Chevrolet, some very beautiful glittering stickers, some nice books, yummy Dunkin’ Donuts cookies, chocolate, a set of paint brushes, a ladybug shaped palette, a ‘glow in the dark’ Crayola crayons set and many more other special presents.

I gave myself a very special birthday present too – a Roselle leaf 🙂

I also received 4 birthday cards.

I think that this is my best birthday ever because I really enjoy playing  with my Hot Wheels and busy trying to build my forklift and helicopter.

We had a Domino’s Pizza birthday party for dinner 😉

I invented a new transport called ‘hictep ler’ :mrgreen:

It is a flying machine.
