Violet Syrup

Violet Syrup is a syrup made from violet petals.

It is a specialty of the village called "Tourrettes sur Loup" in the south of France.

To make it, fresh violet petals are covered with boiling water, and let stand and infuse for a day.

Then it is strained to get the petals out, which are discarded. The water will be bluish.

For every cup (8 oz / 250ml) of the coloured water, you add 2 cups (1 pound / 250g) of sugar and the juice from half a lemon. You put it in a pot, bring to a boil, lower to a simmer and simmer for a few minutes until the sugar is dissolved and slightly thickened.

Then, you remove it from the heat, pour into sterilized jars, and seal and store in refrigerator.
