CRYSTALLIZED FLOWERS AND LEAVES

rose leaves
1 1/2 pounds sugar
1 pint water

Make syrup of one pound sugar and one pint water, boil to ball
stage when dropped in cold water. Remove from fire. Drop in selected,
washed and dried leaves and flowers (rose leaves (not petals),
angelica stalk, mint or sage leaves or flowers, roots of lovage or
violets), pressing down without stirring. These should be thoroughly
dry. Bring syrup to boil again, pour into flat container and set
aside. The second day drain flowers, etc., and add 1/4 pound sugar
to syrup and boil to ball stage. Put in flowers, etc., again bring
to boiling point and set aside. The third day repeat the process
but when syrup comes to boil after flowers are added, stir flowers
lightly until syrup granulates, then pour on sheets of wax paper.
Breakage can best be avoided by separating flowers with fork. Use
for cake and dessert topping.
