We've been getting emails about our violet jelly, lately, so I'll answer some of the common questions about it here. :)
1) what does it taste like? Well. it tastes sweet, like regular jelly, with floral overtones, but not as strongly floral as, say, roses.
2) how do I use it? You can use it like any other jelly - on toast, or warm biscuits with butter (MMM). It's beautiful in thumbprint cookies, or delicious on waffles or pancakes or crepes. It can be slightly warmed, and poured over fresh fruit, as a delicious glaze. You can stir it into tea or coffee, as a flavored sweetener. Last but not least, you can use it with cold meats, or on sandwiches of all sorts.
