Fortune cast me a favourable glance this afternoon. Trudging back along a muddy path towards the railway crossing, I stumbled across a patch of sweet violets huddled underneath two old chestnut trees. The small purple flowers were in abundance, so I felt guilt-free in confiscating a handful. I've yet to decide what to make with the sugar, but I'll keep you posted. Kind of feels like I need a bit of zesty lime in the equation somewhere...
Sweet violet scented sugar
A handful of sweet violet petals
Scatter a layer of violet petals at the bottom of a jar. Cover with sugar and repeat the
process, building up petal/sugar layers until the jar is full. Leave for about a week,
then remove the violets.
