Violete confiate/Candied violets

Dupa atat frig si vreme urata credeam ca in sfarsit primavara isi va face aparitia. Din pacate nu e asa…
Am asteptat cu nerabdare sa putem merge pe deal si prin padure, sa culegem flori si urzicute. Duminica trecuta ne-am facut curaj si am mers intr-o scurta plimbare pe dealurile de langa oras. Iarba abia iesise, am gasit si cateva urzici si chiar niste toporasi.
Atunci mi-am adus aminte de o discutie de pe Facebook cu privire la violetele confiate. Asa ca am cules un pumn de floricele parfumate si le-am adus acasa. Apoi le-am confiat si m-am gandit sa vi le arat si voua.
After cold and bad weather I finally thought that spring will come. Unfortunately it is not as I expected …
I waited anxiously to be able to go up on the hills and through the woods to pick flowers and nettles. Last Sunday we took the plunge and went on a short walk in the hills near the town. Grass just got out, I found some nettles and even some violets.
Then I remembered a conversation on Facebook about candied violets. So I picked a handful of fragrant flowers and I brought them home. Then I candied them and I thought to show them to you.

Iata primul toporas pe care l-am gasit. Mirosea minunat!
Here is the first violet that I found in the woods. It smelled amazing!

Florile culese le-am pus intr-o caserola cu putina apa pentru a-si pastra prospetimea. Ajunsi acasa, am scos florile. Apa in care statusera cateva ore mirosea a parfumul lor minunat!
I put the picked flowers in a casserole with water to keep their freshness. Arrived at home, I took the flowers out of casserole. Water in which they spent several hours was perfumed with their fragrance smelled wonderful!

De ce aveti nevoie:
– un bol mic de toporasi parfumati
– un albus de ou
– zahar tos sau pudra
What you need:
– A small bowl of fragrant violets
– An egg white
– Granulated or powdered sugar

Albusul se bate cu o furculita dupa care fiecare floare se va introduce si rasuci pe toate partile in el.
Beat the egg white with a fork and after that each flower will be introduced and turn on all sides in it.

Apoi fiecare floare se trece prin bolul cu zahar si se rasuceste pe toate partile pentru ca acesta sa se lipeasca de petale.
Then each flower is passed through the sugar bowl and turned on all sides so that the sugar to stick to the petals.

Florile confiate se pun la uscat pe hartie de copt intr-un loc fara prea multa umezeala si caldura.
Cand sunt uscate florile confiate se pun intr-un borcanas inchis cu capac.
Nu veti regreta efortul depus pentru a confia toporasii – sunt intr-adevar deosebiti!
Candied flowers will be put on baking paper to dry. Find a place without much humidity and warmth.
When they are dried, candied flowers are being put into a jar closed with lid.
You won’t regret the effort because the candied violets are really special!
