Ingredients

  • 2 egg whites
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 6 dozen wild violets (including stems but not leaves), washed

Directions

  1. In a bowl, beat egg whites until frothy. Place sugar in a shallow bowl. Holding violets by the stem, dip one at a time into egg whites and then sugar, covering all surfaces.
  2. Place in a single layer on a waxed paper-lined baking sheet; snip off stems. Using a toothpick, separate petals to return to their original shape. Sprinkle sugar on any uncoated areas. Dry in a 200° oven for 30-40 minutes or until sugar crystallizes.
  3. Carefully remove violets to wire racks with a spatula or fork. Sprinkle again with sugar if violets appear syrupy. Cool. Store in airtight containers with waxed paper between layers for up to 1 week. Yield: 6 dozen.
Editor's Note: Only pick flowers from chemical-free woods or lawns. Also, be sure your blossoms come from the common wild violet, not the African houseplant, which is inedible.
