    Candied Violets

    Always a favorite of mine, I made my own for the first time today. Simple enough recipe, just violets, egg white, and confectioners sugar. It's actually a means of preserving the flowers, as the egg and sugar act to dessicate the flowers. Simple but tedious! It took almost an hour to pick and process 50 flowers. A night in the fridge and tomorrow we'll see!

    Always wanted to try these, and try making them. Can't wait to hear how they turned out and hope you'll post a pic!

    This is dangerous for a guy like me. I work at a nursery, where there are tons of violet flowers, and things like this make me really curious....
    Everything has a reason, whether big or small. Never underestimate the power of what is or is not.
    There is far more to everything than meets the eye.

    Try it. It's too tedious to be much danger!

    Unless they are especially grown for the food trade far to dangerous to eat could be sprayed with a dangerous chemical, not worth the risk.
