How to Make Candied Flowers
Recipe type: Dessert
Prep time: 
Total time: 
  1. Rinse flowers in a gentle spray of water. Set on a towel to dry.
  2. Place water and sugar in a small pan. Cook over a medium heat until it begins to boil. Reduce heat and simmer until all of the sugar is dissolved. Remove from heat and allow to cool to room temperature.
  3. Dip flowers into sugar syrup using a stem or tweezers if the flower doesn't have a stem. If you do not want any droplets on your flowers, you can brush the syrup on with a small paint brush.
  4. Set flower on wax paper and sprinkle with fine sugar. Leave the flowers on the wax paper to dry for 2 hours.
Yield: 50 - 100 candied flowers or petals
