I think you make those by using a misting spray bottle and throwing blended sugar on them.
I am going to have to try that. I something with a finer mesh for the powdered sugar.
I think it is a good start. And they’re probably tastier than the ones in the stock picture on top. . I live very close to Washington DC, in Ellicott city. I have been trying to get fragrant/sweet violets growing around here for years… I tried Growing came from seeds, as well as my order ceilings from reputable sources in the US and Europe. I wanted English, French and Tuscan cultivars.
I grew up in Poland, where they are endemic. In fact,I don’t remember any non-fragrant violets.
Where are you actually able to grow fragrance violets in DC?
Just throw regular sugar in the blender it does not have any flour or additives to it and makes a nice fine blend. That one looks like they just pulsed the sugar for like 3 seconds
These are violas what are fragrant violets?
Not in DC anymore save when I visit my Mom, These Violets are just growing wild next to house and there to preaty to waste and I have way to much time not to try to use them. I did buy some sweet violet seeds last year but I did not start them yet. If they take the same environment the wild ones like I should have no problem naturalizing them.
Actualy I put sugar and some corn starch in my spice grinder and it came out perfect.
Ugh, I’ve tried this. I used a paintbrush. I got about ten done before my back was so sore I had to stop
