Decorate your Valentines Day table with candied rose petals... they're gorgeous and delicious!


Pick out 6-12 roses in your favorite colors. Separate the petals and pile them on a plate. Note: if you plan to nibble, you must buy organic roses so that you're not munching on pesticides!

How to Serve:

Create an egg wash by stirring together one egg white with 1 tsp. of water. Stir just to mix! Mixture should stay transparent.

Lightly brush the egg wash over each petal. You can use your fingertip or a small pastry brush. Simply swab the main surface area; you don't have to cover every millimeter.

Sprinke superfine sugar over the petals, and lay them out on a wire rack to dry for a few moments, then place them on baking sheets in a 175 degree oven. At this low temperature, they should slowly crisp up without changing color, in about 45 minutes - 1 hour. Monitor them carefully so that they don't get too done.

Here are some of our favorite things to do with candied rose petals:

- Sprinkle over a salad
- Decorate a scoop of vanilla bean ice cream
- Heap over a cheese platter
- Pile on the table
... whatever and wherever you like!
