Hibiscus Sichuan Shaved Ice

My Craft Book Club craft for The Ten Thousand Doors of January by Alix E. Harrow is a snow cone recipe I found in Nicole A Taylor's cookbook, Watermelon and Red Birds. When contemplating what sort of food to make for this book, I decided it needed to have sea salt because the first door January goes through, she describes the smell as "salt and age and adventure." The recipe also needed to be adventurous (age was not a priority for me). This recipe for hibiscus Sichuan Snow Cones sounded perfect, it had sea salt (I realize now that it wasn't as salty as my initial idea to represent this book) and two special ingredients I needed to buy (hibiscus and Sichuan), adventurous! I topped milky ice with the syrup because I love bingsu, but I think it will be better on plain ice as intended. There is lots of left over syrup, so I can try on plain ice too or even in a drink!

Our next Craft Book Club read is The Southern Book Club's Guide to Slaying Vampires by Grady Hendrix. I still need to borrow it from the library!
