Candied Lilac Flowers
- 40 fresh lilac flowers (washed, dried, and de-stemmed)
- 1 large egg white
- 1 teaspoon water
- ¼ cup superfine sugar (see notes for how to make at home)
In a small bowl, beat the egg white and water together until bubbly. Take each clean and dry flower and paint it completely with egg wash.
Place the painted flower in a small dish with superfine sugar, shake until the flower is completely coated.
Place the flower on wax paper and allow it to dry completely, this takes a few hours.
- To make superfine sugar, add regular granulated sugar to a spice/nut grinder or food processor and pulse just a few times until the sugar resembles a fine grind. Don't go too far or you will end up with powdered sugar.
- Store candied flowers in an airtight container in the fridge.
