Crystalized Violets

The ingredients for making crystallized violets Violet put on a spoon full of sugar

I discovered in the garden the first violets, also called "flowers of March".
The memory comes to me of a quite simple recipe... crystallized violets.

Neither one, nor two, I picked several flowers, washed, dried them, then dipped them in egg white and finally sugar.
I let them dry outdoors so that they harden. They will help me to decorate and flavor my next dessert.

I found some violets this weekend to on my walk. I love the idea of sugaring them. Florence

Being that violets are one of my favorite flowers, right alongside mugeut, lilacs and bluebells ... I must tell you how lovely I find this post, and how beautiful your crystallised violets turned out.
