Liqueur de violette recipe…May 20, 2010
500 grams (about 1 pound and 1.6 oz) of strongly scented violet petals
300 grams (10.5 oz) of sugar
1 litre fruit alcohol 40 degrees (easily found in France, I’m not sure exactly what it is or where to find it outside of France. I imagine it is a 40 percent grain alcohol.)
-Rince the petals and let them dry on a clean towel
-Place them in a jar (rather large) alternating one layer of petals with a layer of sugar. Close the jar and let it sit one week in a hidden place like a cupboard.
-Pour the alcohol on the flowers, mix and reclose the jar. Let macerate for 10 days.
-Filter and pour into a bottle.

Let me know how it turns out. Enjoy!
