We’ve been served pansies on deserts before, it was strange but fun to eat them!

My yard is full of wild violets spring and summer. Beautiful and tasty in salads and mixed in honey butter.

We had lots of wild violets in our yard, so I've candied them and also made violet syrup from them. It's a lot of fun, although you need tons of flowers for the syrup. But the bonus is that you can make several pretty and refreshing spring/summer drinks from it, both alcoholic and non.
