It happens this time of the year
It will soon get warm
And the pansies will have to be replaced with summer annuals
So, I go and clip these smiley blossoms
For pansies is one of our first "crop" of the year
To savor for winter
With egg white and sugar
We transform the pansies
Into bits of candied delight
We put them in an old candy tin
separated by sheets of parchment paper
And during the winter . . .
We use them to decorate cakes and cupcakes
especially for tea
It brings a bit of spring to dreary winter days!
