Edible Tie

  • 8

I am trying to create a sweet "purse" with brie, rasberry preserves and pecans, similar to a thai golden purse that is tied with a chive. I am looking for a tie to create the purse but obviously do not want to use a chive as it will not fit with the flavors I'm using. Does anyone have any suggestions?? Thanks!

  1. Red string licorice?

    1. A thin strip of vanilla bean?

      1. Does it actually need to tie or is it for decorative purposes only? caramelized sugar, piped white chocolate, a strip of orange peel (without pith), fruit leather cut into a long strip.

        1. would fruit leather work? it's not candy per se....

          1. I might try a piece of young lemon grass or the previously mentioned vanilla bean strip.

            1. Maybe a long thin strip of citrus -- lime, lemon, orange -- cut with a channeling tool, and blanched briefly or even candied. Tangerines or clementines have a softer peel to start with.

              1. what if you cook angel hair pasta or spaghetti noodle in sugared water?

                a strand of rhubarb?

                wish there was such a thing as a strand of mint... the stem of a leaf?

                1. Not edible, but what about the stem of a maraschino cherry?
