You can crystallise just about anything, from edible flowers to fruits and herbs. Obviously roses scream of Valentines and these little sparkly beauties are sure to impress your loved one. These petals shouldn’t be attempted on a humid day as the moisture will cause the sugar to clump. Arrange them decoratively on cakes and desserts. And yes, they really can be eaten!
