VIOLET SUGAR

Alternate layers of petals and sugar. Steep for two weeks. Whirl in the food processor.


Notes

*Pull petals from any greenery to keep the flavor fresh and floral

*The moisture of the plant matter will make for hard clumps so this why you will blend in the food processor

* You now have fine/casting sugar so adjust recipes accordingly

*I typically use maple syrup as my sweetener of choice, but choose cane sugar when working with florals as the neutral flavor allows you to taste the bloom


VIOLET SYRUP

Fill a jar with blooms and top with just boiling water. Cover and steep for 24 hours.


Strain flowers. In a pan, heat equal amounts of tea and sugar until sugar is melted.


Notes:

*If your brain needs specific numbers, think 1c flowers, 1 c water and 1c sugar

* Store in fridge
