Delicate herbs can make a pretty garnish for fruit tarts. Coat them in sugar to make them look even more special and to add a sweet hit. Cilantro leaves, tiny basil leaves, and, of course, mint are all good choices. Here’s how to do it: Use a small, clean paintbrush dipped in egg white (use pasteurized eggs if consuming raw egg is a concern) to coat both sides of the leaves. Sprinkle granulated sugar or sanding sugar over the egg and let dry.
