Ingredients

    Lavender Petha:
  • 1 large petha fruit (winter melon), peels, cored, and cut into 1×2 inch chunks
  • Water for soaking and cooking
  • 4 cups granulated sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder

Directions

    Lavender Petha:
  1. Soak petha and baking powder in either a large pot or plastic zip-lock bag overnight.
  2. Drain petha and lightly rinse.
  3. Bring petha and fresh water to a boil and cook on high heat for about 20-25 minutes.
  4. Drain petha pieces.
  5. Dissolve sugar and 1 cup fresh water in pan over high heat.
  6. Add petha and continue to cook until water continues to evaporate and petha pieces start to form a nice, slightly thicker coating.
  7. Refrigerate petha in syrup along with lavender sprigs overnight.
  8. Return petha, syrup, and lavender sprigs to the pan and continue to cook on high heat until syrup becomes thick and sticky.
  9. Remove petha pieces and allow to dry several hours on baking rack, plastic wrap, or parchment paper.
  10. Store in an air-tight container or bag.
