~~ Violets ~~

The violets are blooming , they're so beautiful. I harvested some of the blooms yesterday , and made violet jelly. This was the first time I've made violet jelly , the flavor is mild and delicate , it taste wonderful on crackers. Making it was fun , it turns 3 different colors through the process. If you're interested in making violet jelly or want to learn more about violet as a herb , check-out the links below.

The April issue of Herbal Roots is about violets ........ , I haven't purchased it yet but I'm sure it's full of wonderful information.
