This is a gourmet candy made with pansy (Viola Odorata). You can find them from february to may in the woods or in gardens.
The "violette" (how we call them in Italy) are sweet and perfumed, and they look really decorative and delicate.
You can eat these pretty candy just by themselves, use them to accompany a cup of espresso or to decorate icecream, dessert or cakes.
Step 1: WHAT YOU NEED
-violet (pansy, botanical name: viola odorosa), for as many candy you want to make. Pick the fresher and bigger one. Thake them far away from a street and If you think they may be dirty you can gently wash them and let them dry on a clean towel; don't remove the stem.
-sugar (enough for deep all your violet);
-water (the sam weight of the water you are going to use).
