Gold and silver make food sparkle

edible-silver-and-edible-gold-sprinkles.jpgIt's the holidays, and I can't help it: I like things that shine. For a really special touch, try edible gold and silver powder, sprinkles, or leaf. Easy Leaf Products makes these pure, fancy garnishes for adding sparkle atop frothy eggnog, dusted over cooked vegetables (like the tomatoes pictured below), or adorning a chocolate cake or truffles. Check out their online " How To Gild" guide for beautiful ideas (such as how to rim a glass with gold or silver) and recipes, including this one for Gilded Pumpkin Soup. According to Indian and Chinese medicine, gold and silver is considered a digestive aid and natural remedy, "thanks to its constitutional properties, especially related to the inner organs (heart, uterus, stomach)." easy_leaf-22.jpg
