Instructions Checklist
  • Clean and dry your flowers or petals. Use a brush to paint a thin layer of egg white onto each side of the flower petals or blossoms. Gently place them into a shallow bowl of superfine sugar and sprinkle sugar over them to coat. Remove from the bowl, and place them on a piece of waxed paper. Sprinkle some more of the sugar over them. Allow them to dry until stiff, about 8 hours. Store at room temperature in an airtight container until using.

Cook's Notes:

A few examples of edible flowers include: carnation (peppery flavor), daylily, dianthus (clove-like flavor), hibiscus, hollyhock, lavender, orange blossom, rose petals, pansies, violets.

If you are concerned about the safety of using raw egg whites, you may purchase pasteurized egg white in your grocer's dairy section.

Editor's Note:

This recipe contains raw egg. We recommend that pregnant women, young children, the elderly, and the infirm do not consume raw egg. Learn more about egg safety from our article, How to Make Your Eggs Safe.

My flowers ended up crusted with sugar and never really dried. A confrence with my mom suggested that I used too much egg white (she knew the recipe by heart!) but I won't try this again. Too much work and expensive ingredients. Read More
