Candied Violets or Rose Petals

Place one pound of sugar in sufficient water to dissolve. 

Boil to syrup.  Cool.

Pick petals one-by-one.  Place in cool water, then drain and add to syrup and let stand until sugar forms a coating around petals.  Drain - separate on a paper.  Let stand until perfectly dry.  Keep in a cool, dry place. 

 

Notes:
Betty - The trick in this is that the sugar syrup must be fairly cool, or it will burn up the violets (or rose petals).
