Violet Pudding Recipe

If I have a good handful of violet blossoms left over after preparing the Violet, Honey and Sumac Drink Recipe I make some violet pudding.

Place a cup of tightly packed violet blossoms in a tea pot or pan that can be covered. Add 1 1/2 cups of boiling water and let steep until cool. In the meantime, mix together four teaspoons of gelatine and 1/4 cup cold water in a pan. Add 3/4 cup honey, 1/4 teaspoon sea salt and 1/2 cup lemon juice. Now pour the violet tea over the mixture in the pail, place over heat and bring to a boil while stirring constantly. Remove from the fire, cool, pour into a mold and chill until firm.
