Edible organic moringa flowers are embedded into easy hard candies that can be whipped up in just 5 minutes with an endless variety of flavors and colors!


Granulated sugar 1/4 Cup (4 tbs)
Lyle's golden syrup/Corn syrup 2 Tablespoon
Salt 1 Pinch
Beet juice/Vanilla flavoring 2 Teaspoon
Edible organic flowers 2 Tablespoon



1. In a heavy bottomed pan/pot, combine the sugar and syrup. Sprinkle in the salt.

2. Allow it to cook evenly and bubble until it begins to turn light amber.

3. You can gauge the candy with a thermometer at 300 degrees or take a bit of candy {careful, it's very hot!} and dunk it in cool water. If it hardens immediately, it's ready. If it's still too soft and malleable, it won't set.

4. Take off the heat and whisk in the color/flavorings. Don't add in more than 2-3 teaspoons or it will dilute the mixture too much.

5. Pour freeform on into desired molds over flowers.


6. Set and enjoy.
