I got this idea last year from another local blogger, now found at Crunchy Chelle, and I thought I'd give it another shot this year. My yard was gorgeous this spring when the violets were in bloom and I sat myself down one sunny weekend day and just picked. I don't put anything on my lawn so no worries there. I gave the flowers a good rinse, packed them in a mason jar, filled it with white vinegar and let time do it's work. I only made one jar so I don't have a lot of product, but I will get a salad or two out of it. Mostly, I just thought it was pretty sitting on my windowsill.
