It never would have occurred to me to candy sweet peas had I not tried a candied pea as part of a dessert at The Guild House in Columbus. The candied peas are crunchy and sugary with a sweet pea flavor on the inside. I’ve been leaving them out in my kitchen and snacking on them as I walk by the bowl. But, they are also wonderful for a totally unique dessert decoration.
Here they are on top of my pea and ricotta cupcakes:Candied peas would also be fun over ice cream!
In other unique things to candy, have you seen my candied cucumbers?
