Violet Jelly & Syrup

by Sarah Lawless

If you have enough violets, why not make violet jelly or violet syrup to delight your taste buds? Not all violets are created equal - for these recipes you want to forage ones with fragrance. There are at least eleven different species of wild violets in Ontario alone! Many of the white and yellow wild violets in the woods don't have much of a scent to their flowers (except for maybe viola blanda). For culinary purposes I tend to stick to viola odorata aka sweet violet. If you can never find enough to harvest, why not grow them?
