Violet Adventure

It was a beautiful spring day and the sun was shining through the treetops when I came across stunning fields of violets in the forest. My herbalist heart skipped a beat and these gorgeous, fragrant flowers instantly inspired me to make violet syrup.


  • A few handfuls of fresh violet flowers (ideally picked in the morning)
  • 500 ml of water
  • 1000 g of sugar
  • A few drops of lemon juice


  1. First, rinse the violet flowers carefully and let them drain in a colander.
  2. Bring the water to a boil in a saucepan
  3. Add violet flowers to the hot water, cover and leave to infuse overnight, or at least for a few hours.
  4. The next day, strain the violet infusion through cheesecloth into a clean pot. The leachate will now be green-blue in color.
  5. Add a few drops of lemon juice, acidification will gradually change the color to purple. Be careful, too much juice will turn the color pink!
  6. Add the sugar, heat just to the boil and stir until the sugar dissolves.
  7. Pour the hot syrup into sterilized bottles and seal.

Violet syrup not only tastes and smells wonderful, but also has positive health effects. It is an ideal phytotherapeutic choice for coughs in children. Violets are also known for their mild sedative properties, which can help you relax and sleep better.

Violet syrup is a great addition to various drinks such as teas, lemonades or cocktails. Its unique taste and aroma make it the perfect gift for friends and family, allowing them to enjoy the magic of spring in delicious form. Violet flowers are edible and you can use them to decorate dishes.
