INGREDIENTS (for 2 servings):
- 1/4 cup egg whites, beaten
- 1/2 cup superfine sugar
- 2 cups assorted edible flowers
Clean and dry your flowers or petals. Use a brush to paint a thin layer of egg white onto each side of the flower petals or blossoms. Gently place them into a shallow bowl of superfine sugar and sprinkle sugar over them to coat. Remove from the bowl, and place them on a piece of waxed paper. Sprinkle some more of the sugar over them. Allow them to dry until stiff, about 8 hours. Store at room temperature in an airtight container until using.
A few edible flowers:
Carnation (peppery flavor), daylily, dianthus (clove-like flavor), hibiscus, hollyhock, lavender, orange blossom, rose petals, pansies, violets.Editor's Note:
If you are concerned about the safety of using raw egg whites, you may purchase pasteurized egg white in your grocer's dairy section.
