Candied Mint Leaves
Use up some of your mint leaves to create a delicious candied treat that can soothe upset stomachs, freshen the breath, and decorate cupcakes.
- Mint leaves
- 1 Egg white
- Granulated sugar
Preheat oven to 225 degrees Fahrenheit.
Whisk the egg white until it is bubbly.
Dip the leaves one by one in the egg white then in the sugar. Using a spoon to help coat the herbs makes it easier to cover them well.
Place the herbs on the wax paper covered cookie sheet.
Put the cookie sheet in the oven and dry gently for about 30-60 minutes or until completely dry
Remove from the oven and cool
Once they have cooled and are dry and brittle, store them in between layers of waxed/parchment paper in a tin or glass jar.
