I found this recipe for jam/jelly - It makes a delicious jam with a gorgeous colour:

2 cups of apple pectin stock (you could use water)
1 tablespoon of lemon juice
1 1/3 cups sugar
3 tablespoons of dried hibiscus flowers
Bring all to a boil, dissolve sugar and bring temperature up to 220 degrees until jell stage is reached. Ladle into hot jars and seal, process for ten minutes. I left the flowers in the jelly, because they taste good. You could strain them if you want.
