Ingredients
  • 2 large egg whites, at room temperature
  • 1 teaspoon water
  • 1 dozen pesticide-free edible flowers, such as violets, marigolds, and rose petals
  • 1 cup superfine sugar
Directions

In a small bowl, combine the egg whites and water; beat lightly with a fork. Dip a paint brush in the egg whites and gently paint a flower – covering the petals thoroughly but not excessively. While still wet, gently sprinkle the coated petals with the superfine sugar. Put the crystallized flowers on a sheet pan lined with waxed paper to dry for 12 to 24 hours. Use to top cakes and desserts.
