Another cooking and preservation method that adds variety to vegan cookery is candying. Rather than adding salt to preserve a vegetable as in pickling, one adds sugar. I like to candy citrus peel, fruits, nuts, vegetables such as beetroot, herbs such as angelica and flowers such as rose petals. These courgette strips can be added to desserts or even salads! Unusual!

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
200g caster sugar
175ml water
1 courgette, sliced lengthways using a mandolin

Method

  1. Dissolve the sugar in the water in a medium saucepan over a medium heat. Once dissolved, add the courgette strips and simmer until translucent. Remove from the heat and allow to cool. Lay the strips, spreading them out flat, on a silicone mat or sheet of baking parchment and let them dry in a dehydrator or a very low oven (100°C) about an hour until crispy.
