Wild Things

Violets were my Mom's favorite flower. This year, we seem to have an abundance, particularly where they shouldn't be. But they can be transplanted and work very well between tree roots.

I also read somewhere that someone (the French?) dip these first in lemon juice, dust them with superfine sugar and use them to decorate cakes. And they are completely edible.

Think we'll stick with the Morels.

How did the morels turn out? What did you serve them with??

You can also use them in salad. Just don't eat them, if they have been treated with non-food fertilizer or chemicals. That might be worse than a bad mushroom.:0)

Might be safer to eat the flowers.
