Notes

How to make the violet sugar

There is two ways I suggest, to do this. One, the easy way, and two the slightly less easy way.


The the slightly less easy way:
  1. Pick, or buy edible violas
  2. In a blender, blend 1/4 cup of viola petals with 1/2 cup of sugar and 1tsp of Lemon zest
The easy way:
  1. Buy Palma violet sweets
  2. Blend into a fine dust
  3. If you dont have a blender, Smash and grind the living hell out of them with a muddler, back of a spoon, rock, whatever you have at hand
