Crystallized Flowers - Borgage
Prep Time: 30 minutes
Cook Time: 12 hours
Yield: Makes 12 to 24 crystallized flowers.
Crystallized borage (made from borage flowers) makes for a tasty and decorative topping for cakes, cupcakes and more.


>> 12 to 24 borage flowers
>> 1 egg white at room temperature
>> 250 g organic cane sugar (white sugar can be used)
>> Few drops of water
>> Small craft paintbrush


Combine egg white with water. Using a fork lightly beat until white just shows some bubbles. Place sugar in a shallow dish. Hold flower with one hand in with the other, dip a small paintbrush into the egg then gently paint the flower with the mixture. Gently sprinkle flower with sugar.

Place completed flowers on a wire rack covered with parchment paper to dry. Repeat with other flowers.

Allow to completely dry before using as a decorative topping to a cupcake, cake, etc. Depending on humidity this may be anywhere from 12-36 hours. Store crystallized flowers in an airtight container until required.

Note: any edible wild flower can be used for this recipe.
