Old Fashioned Sweet Violet Syrup. My Papa Pills use to have these growing in the lawn and flower beds in Sutter Creek. They talked of this syrup. So pretty! If you don& add sugar you could use this to dye your creams, good idea.
Spring Violet Vinegar: Wild Violets packed into jars or bottles, add Champagne vinegar, & wild onions. Let sit for a week or so and strain off the violets. Add a few tablespoons of sugar to each bottle or jar. Use to dress wild spring greens.
