Spring is two days away and we are getting in the spirit by making some yummy edible flower lollipops. These make great class gifts or treats for fete stalls.
We picked some nasturtiums and gently tore off each petal ready to use. Then we lined a tray with baking paper and placed the lollipop sticks on the tray leaving plenty of room between each. We placed the nasturtium petals at the end of the sticks then got to work making the candy!
Candy directions- Add 2 and 1/3 cups of sugar, 1 tablespoon of vinegar and 1 cup cold water in a heavy-based saucepan over low heat. Cook, stirring, for 3 minutes or until sugar has dissolved. Increase heat to medium-high. Boil, without stirring, for 12 to 15 minutes or until mixture turns golden. Set aside for 1 minute or until bubbles subside.
When bubbles subside gently pour the mixture over each nasturtium to form a freehand circular shape. Let cool for an hour at room temp then gently peel away from baking paper...
