• Make Your own Candied Flowers

    Create your very own tasty edible candied flowers using this simple delectable recipe. First, you'll need Petals from
    any edible flower (These flowers may be safely eaten and are suggested for this recipe: Pansy, violet, rose, nasturtium, gladiola, carnation, dianthus, calendula, squash blossom, lilac, marigold, dandelion, peach blossom, plum blossom, orange blossom, hibiscus, geranium, bachelor button, snapdragon, jasmine, gardenia, and angelica.)



    You'll Need:

    • Several well-beaten egg whites
    • Vanilla
      extract
    • Bowl of granulated sugar
    • Edible Flowers of your Choice


    Directions

    Mix a few drops of vanilla into the egg whites.

    Dip a paintbrush in the egg whites and coat the petals.

    Dip petals into sugar until coated, then spread on wax paper to dry.

    Use to decorate cakes, cookies or anything else you like.

    **You cannot use flowers bought at a florist for this recipe!! Many commercially-bought flowers contain pesticides and it is not worth it to ingest poison. Please obtain all flowers from organic retailers or from home-grown sources.**

      I am curious, since using an egg white wash, do you have to bake the flowers to be safe??
