Violets, Seville Oranges and Batique

21 Jan

1   The other day on the way home from Mylor, we saw Violets for sale at the roadside. I have my little bunch and they are very beautiful.

      You can if you are going to make them into marmalade. You can boil them from frozen as the first stage. Good eh? 🙂
