How to make candied flowers

You will need some fresh organic edible flowers and petals, clean them well with kitchen paper and a little water, if necessary, but make sure that they are not wet before starting.

Mix an egg white lightly with a fork (do not whip). Coat the petals with the egg white.

Next step: coat with sugar. I find caster sugar a bit to rough, and icing sugar too fine, so I just put some normal white sugar in a mixer and grind it a little until it is finer but not as fine as icing sugar.

I keep the egg white, sugar bowl and a tray all in a line so I can work more easily.

Let the flowers and petal dry completely and then store away in a dry place until needed.

And now some flowers for Pinterest!
