Candied mint leaves

Yield: 10 servings

Measure Ingredient
40 Apple or Pineapple Mint Leaves (select tender leaves with no blemishes)
2 Egg whites (may need more)
Water
Powdered sugar

The large downy leaves of the apple and pineapple mint leaves take up this coating very well which will not readily adhere to most of the varieties of the mint. This is a nice confection that has many uses.

********************************************************************** Froth up the egg whites with a little water. With a small brush, paint the leaves with the egg white and dust both sides with the powdered sugar. Set each leaf on a sheet of wax paper and allow to dry. They will dry with a frosty crystalized coating and make a nice garnish for desserts or a pleasant candy treat.
