Candied Mint Leaves

Fresh mint leaves

1 egg white, slightly beaten

3 tablespoons sugar

1 drop mint extract

Prepare the mint leaves by removing from the stem. Using your fingers, gently rub the egg white onto each leaf. Lay the leaves out on a sheet of parchment paper. In a small bowl, combine sugar and mint extract, mixing well. Sprinkle or sift the sugar mixture over the mint leaves. Allow to dry. When crisp, the mint leaves are ready to use.
