No-bake Roselle Mascarpone Cheesecake
One of my favorite moment from my mother's garden is when all her plants started to bloom beautifully, then slowly begin to bear fruits. There will be so much idea in my head what I will make while waiting for the fruits begin to ripe enough. This month my mother harvest a lot of roselle from the garden. Like usual, she makes sweeten roselle from ripe roselle's fruits (sometime people called it roselle's petals). From her sweeten roselle, we can make roselle drinks, just add water and ice cubes or make delicious roselle jam. Roselle originally taste very sour, so it's very refresh in hot weather with cold, sweet and sour roselle drinks. I will share my mother's recipe of this sweeten roselle next, but now I'm craving with cheesecake. I have my mother's roselle jam in the fridge combine with mascarpone cheese, I finally got a chance to add in her list 'things you can make from sweeten roselle'. And the most important thing is she love this soft and creamy cheesecake. Love her smile!
