One of my (Alice) personal favorites is the violet, which is a pretty little flower with tons of different uses. Although, what I'm showing you in this post isn't exactly a very filling way of using this plant, it is a very fun way to dress up your table this spring! :-)
To make these cute violet ice cubes, the first
thing you'll need to do is go gather up some violet flowers.
Tip: to wash your flowers, simply rinse them
gently and pat dry with a paper towel and lay flat.
Then fill up your ice tray(s) with water and, very
gently, lay and submerge each little blossom.
Place the ice tray(s) in the freezer.
This is such a pretty way to decorate up any event
like a baby shower, tea party, little girl's birthday
party, or just as a fun addition to your table at home.
You could also get creative and try this
with a bunch of other edible flowers too.
I hope to post some more ways that we use the
violet really soon, so be sure to check back often. :-)
What kind of wild edibles do y'all like to gather?
