Violet Jelly and Tea Parties

A Big Thank You to Joyce Ann Over at Feathered Spirits for sharing a violet jelly recipe, Check out her blog. The websites for the recipes are on her yesterday's post. We were on the same page yesterday!lol I forgot to take a pic. of the violets but the website shows a pic. After I strained the violets the water was blue (not sure what happened in these pics. what looks black is really clear)

Once I added lemon juice the blue turned purple.

This is the finished product.I used the little jars for Tea Parties with "My Little Shadow" She is here today and was very excited about her Jelly. We had a tea party this morning, when the jelly sets we'll have another tea party with cream cheese/violet jelly on Ritz crackers.
I look forward to making different types of jelly for our Tea Parties.Thanks so much Joyce Ann!
Hope everyone has a Great wk.end! Make time to share a cup of tea with Someone Special!

Hi Lib,
Love the pictures of your violet jelly. I imagine it tastes as good as it looks! nancy

Your jelly looks wonderful sitting in the windowsill and a tea party sounds delightful. Cream cheese with violet jelly on a ritz cracker sounds yummy , will have to try that. I only have regular saltines at the moment , but it taste good on them too.
I really enjoyed making violet jelly , watching the process of the changing colors was fun.
My daughter told Curious J , it looked like the jellyfish jelly that SpongeBob eats on his crabby patties , he loved it (lol).
Today I plan to make ice cubes with violets , will freeze , bag them up and serve them with lemonade when I make it. I've always wanted to do that , just never took the time , but today I will.
