Last Christmas my daughter was living and breathing Rainbow Magic. On Christmas day she woke to a small jar of fairy dust and a letter from her beloved Rachael and Kirsty. There were so many gifts exchanged on the day, but nothing was near as exciting as the little jar of fairy dust and her special note.
500 grams of strawberries
Squeeze of lemon juice
Preheat oven to 65 degrees Celsius or 150 degrees Fahrenheit. Line two oven trays with baking paper.
Puree the above ingredients until smooth. Pour thinly over the baking paper. Bake for three hours, peel away from the paper and quickly pulse the dried strawberries in your blender or food processor until it resembles a fine powder.
This only makes a small amount, depending on what you are using the fairy dust for you can quickly whiz up some desiccated coconut or rolled oats and mix it through until well combined.
My daughter has a pinch of fairy dust and it takes her to fairy land, it enables the fairies to hear her thoughts and she can speak to them, this was all explained in her little note from her Rainbow Magic friends.
We have sprinkled our Fairy Dust on cupcakes, frozen bananas and many other things. I also think it would be great if you had a fussy little one who could sprinkle this on her meals. Be sure to let me know how you use it, I hope your little fairies love it!
