Edible flowers should be garden-fresh & free of chemicals

Carnation                                          Lilac

Roses                                                  Violets

Use fresh edible flowers in salads and as a beautiful garnish for desserts.
Dried edible flowers may be used also.
Have fun experimenting!

Before using fresh flowers, rinse,  handling with care.
Remove pistils, stamens & the white part at the base of the petals
because it may be bitter in taste.

                          How to Crystallize flowers

Violets & rose petals work well….1 frothy beaten egg white & a tsp. water
super fine sugar
Using tweezers, dip each flower or petal in the liquid mixture
or brush onto petal with paint brush.
Shake to remove excess.
Dip each flower or petal into a bowl of sugar; shake off excess.
Place on paper towels on a wire rack to dry.
Store in an airtight tin lined with waxed paper.
