Hibiscus Simple Syrup
  1. In heavy saucepan, combine coconut milk, condensed milk and heavy cream. Add salt, vanilla and cornstarch or arrowroot. Stir together and heat to simmer.
  2. While milk mixture heats, combine gelatin with 4 Tbsp. water or milk in small bowl. Let rest 1 minute.
  3. When milk mixture comes to a simmer, remove from heat and stir in gelatin. (Note: Texture should be smooth and velvety.)
  4. Fill 6-8 ramekins or small dessert bowls with mixture and set aside to cool.
