Start with one part infusion of fresh violet leaf and flowers that has been left to steep overnight, and two parts honey. Alternatively, you can use three parts honey if you prefer a thicker syrup.
The color doesn't show in the finished syrup, which is a shame- violet infusion is simply gorgeous. For more information on how I made the infusion for this project, you can see the directions here.
- dry cough
- sore throat
Remember, though: because it contains honey it should not be given to children under the age of one. For more info on violet, check out this list of great articles I rounded up, Violets: A Best Articles Collection
