Each leaf should be fresh and dry.
Beat egg white with fork until opaque, but not foaming Dip each leaf into egg till coated or paint eggwhite onto leaf
Dip leaf in sugar untill well coated
Lay on wax paper
Dry in low oven with the door ajar
When dry and brittle, store between layers of wax paper in an airtight container
