Turn summer flowers into irresistible garnishes. Choose edible organic flowers (violet, pansy, acacia and rose petals ...) that you cut the stem to ½-cm (1/4-inch) of the flower, for easy handling.
Gently dip the flowers in water to clean them thoroughly and allow to dry on a sheet of paper towel.
Place a lightly beaten egg white and granulated sugar in two separate bowls. With a small brush, brush one flower at a time with the egg white, while taking care to remove any excess. Sprinkle with sugar and place it on a plate lined with parchment paper.
Let dry for 12 to 24 hours, in the open air, in a dry place.
Keep in an airtight container.
