Begin by gathering your ingredients. You will need:
- 1-2 cups of edible organic flowers
- 1 egg white, at room temperature
- 1 tsp water
- 1/2 cup superfine sugar
- Small paintbrush
- Wire drying rack
A note about ingredients: edible organic flowers can be found packaged in the herb section of many grocery stores. You can also look for them in season at local farmer's markets, or grow your own. Just be sure that the flower variety is edible and no pesticides are used!
Egg whites are necessary to this recipe, so if consuming raw eggs is a concern, use a pasteurized egg white.
Finally, if you do not have superfine sugar, you can easily make your own following these instructions.
