Wild Sweet Violet Syrup

When my friend Sadie, at All Natural Me, mentioned making violet syrup for Easter, I thought to myself, "How quaint!  We should try it."  But that was a busy time and who can keep up with Sadie!  Plus my yard was full of wild violets so I put it off for another day.  On our wildcrafting rescue mission before the first grass cutting of the season, I looked for violets and was sad to see that there weren't many left!  We gathered what we could and made a batch of violet syrup and I'll just send you over to Lavender and Lovage for her recipe and beautiful pictures.
  It's really yummy!

Funny story...my husband, who is not really on board with all this herbal stuff, saw the bottle in the fridge and tasted the syrup.  He found me and asked what was in the blue bottle in a disapproving tone of voice.  when I told him he exclaimed, "It's REALLY good!"
