Make Earth Day Violet Vinegar
"Fill any-size jar with violet flowers and leaves almost to the top, as firm as a fairy bed I was told. Fill again with apple cider vinegar. Cover with a piece of wax paper or plastic wrap and cap with a lid and ring. (The vinegar will corrode the metal on the lid.) Let steep in a cool dark place for 2-6 weeks, strain, and store in the cupboard. At this point it has been transformed into a medicinal violet vinegar rich in vitamins and minerals. I try to make my food my medicine so I either add a tablespoon to a glass of water or use it in recipes."  I gathered just a little late Thursday, but

will return for more tomorrow and include leaves
