Crystallized Rose Petals
This recipe for crystallized rose petals is from pastry chef Johnny Iuzzini's "Dessert FourPlay" and is used to make Chocolate-Beet Cakes with Candied Beets and Rose Petals.
- 6 organic rose petals (unsprayed and pesticide free)
- Johnny Iuzzini's Simple Syrup
Dip rose petals in simple syrup. Let excess drip off and transfer to a paper-towel-lined plate. Lightly dust rose petals with sugar to coat. Transfer rose petals to a baking sheet lined with a nonstick baking mat or parchment paper. Transfer baking sheet to a cold oven and let dry overnight. Rose petals may be kept in an airtight container for up to 1 week.
