Candied Edible Flowers

To coat the flower petals with the sugar mixture, I use a kids' paint brush. I've also frozen some of the sugared blooms after they've dried to use at a later date.
  • Total Time
    Prep: 30 min. + standing

    40-50 candied flowers

Ingredients

  • 2 teaspoons meringue powder

  • 40 to 50 edible blossoms or flower petals of your choice, such as pansies, edible orchids or rose petals
  • 1-1/4 cups superfine sugar

Directions

  • In a small bowl, dissolve meringue powder in water. Lightly brush over all sides of flowers to coat completely. Sprinkle with sugar.
  • Let dry on a waxed paper-lined baking sheet for 1-2 days. Use as a garnish for dessert.
