Crystallized Rose Petals

cook 10 mins
  • 2 egg whites
  • 2–3 tablespoons caster sugar
  • 2 sweet-scented, opened roses
  • Line a baking sheet with greaseproof paper. In a spotlessly clean bowl, whisk the egg whites with a hand-held electric whisk until stiff.
  • Tip the sugar onto a plate. Carefully pull the rose petals off the flower heads. Brush a rose petal with a little egg white, then dip into the sugar. Shake off any excess and place on the greaseproof paper to dry. Repeat with the remaining rose petals.
  • For best results, leave for 1–2 hours until completely dry. Peel off the paper, then use to decorate puddings, cakes and milk drinks.
