# 3. Flower Power
What is spring without flowers? Roses are an edible flower, which has become a symbol of St. Valentine’s Day. You can use dried roses to decorate different desserts adding beauty and fragrance.

Dissolve gelatin in strawberry juice and pour a thin layer into a mould, then sprinkle some rose petals then put the mould in the freezer for a few minutes to set. Take it out and cover the layer with the petals with some more gelatin until you fill the mould. Put back into the fridge until the gelatin is set. You will get beautiful gummies that look like little jewels.
# 4. Lemon Peel
Lemon peels are another favorite treat that is both fresh and sweet. It is very simple to make and everybody loves it. All you need is 1 large lemon, 2 cups of water and 2 ¼ cups sugar. Peel the lemon and slice the strips thin. Put the strips with 2 cups of water and use high heat to bring to boil. Add the sugar and bring the pan over medium heat, bring to boil again and reduce to low heat, simmer for about 10 minutes until the peels become translucent. Drain and arrange the peels on a sheet of parchment paper in a single layer. Coat the cooled lemon peel with sugar and serve.
