Candied Rose Petals
© Photo by Eric Wolfinger
- 1 pasteurized egg white beaten with a little water (prepared meringue powder or a simple syrup will also do)
- Granulated sugar
- Rose petals, rinsed and patted dry
- A small brush (a watercolor brush will work just fine)
Whip egg white until frothy. Using your small brush, paint the egg white onto each side of the petal. Roll the petals in the sugar to coat evenly, being careful not to coat the petal too thick. Leave on waxed paper to dry for a day. They may be stored for a few months in an airtight container, without losing flavor or fragrance.
I hope that this image travels the world …
“While newspapers and television talk about the lives of celebrities, the chief of the Kayapo tribe received the worst news of his life: Dilma, “The new president of Brazil, has given approval to build a huge hydroelectric plant (the third largest in the world). It is the death sentence for all the people near the river because the dam will flood 400,000 hectares of forest. More than 40,000 Indians will have to find another place to live. The natural habitat destruction, deforestation and the disappearance of many species is a fact.”
What moves me in my very bowels , making me ashamed of being part of Western culture, is the reaction of the chief of the Kayapo community when he learned of the decision—his gesture of dignity and helplessness before the advance of capitalist progress, modern predatory civilization that does not respect the differences …
But we know that a picture is worth a thousand words, showing the reality of the true price of our bourgeois “quality of life”.
I don’t think many other people could deal with being or living with me every day outside of the boys! They’ve grown up with me so they understand me, but I’m quite a intense person to be around I imagine – because I’m constantly working as well and I’m constantly consuming and smoking and running around and fucking trying to do a million things at once - Matty Healy
