Violet Jelly

Wash and rinse the violets
2 C violets
2 C boiling water
1/4 C lemon juice
1 box pectin
4 C sugar
Add boiling water and let steep up to 24 hours. 
Bring violet juice, lemon juice and pectin to a rolling boil.

This was a hit with my family. I need to find more violets.
Add sugar and boil for one minute.

Process 10 minutes in a hot water bath.

This sounds really, really an "I want to try that" sort of way. Here's a stupid question: Where do you get violets?

We have them all over our yard. They are tiny, purple flowers that are low to the ground. Violet jelly is really good. I was surprised.
