These candied angelica stalks have gorgeous, naturally green color and pleasantly herbaceous flavor. The ingredients are simple and sweet: just angelica, sugar and glucose. Angelica, "herb of the angels," has been used for centuries as a medicinal plant (to stimulate digestion) and as a flavoring for liqueurs.
Candied angelica is a rare and hard-to-find ingredient that brings special flavor to cookies, cakes and other desserts. You'll receive stalks that are between four and eight inches long. Slice and add them to fruitcake or Christmas trifle or use the pieces to decorate sweets like cassata Siciliana, the traditional Italian cake made with a layer of ricotta cheese and candied fruit.
