5large apples or 10 small apples cut into quarters
12guayabas cut in half
20tejocotes apple hawthorn cut in half
2sugar canesask for them to be cut into pieces, each will give you approximately 5-6 pieces of (20 cm or 8 in each
2handfuls of dry hibiscus flowers
6cupssugarif you want it to be sweet
4 gallon pot
Peel the sugar cane pieces and split them lengthwise (see photo)
Place all the ingredients in a large pot (it needs to hold about 4 gallons).
Fill the pot to near the top with water and heat on high. When it starts to boil, reduce the heat and let it simmer for 30-40 minutes or until all the fruits are cooked and have changed color completely.
When it's ready, turn the heat off and let it rest with the top on for at least 4 hours. (In reality, you can drink it when it is finished cooking, but if you let it sit for the full 4 hours, it will be much tastier).
