Wednesday's sunrise started out pretty nice, although they said clouds would move in. I was slow to start the day, but put on some dance music and got to work.

Asparagus/sausage breakfast bake ~ Wild Violet Jelly
Breakfast ended up a sage sausage/asparagus bake with some home grown basil, garlic, and kale. I added a bit of freshly grated parmesan cheese too.
I canned jars of wild violet jelly. I am so glad I picked the violets when I did. Snow showers are expected today. Wild violets are medicinal as well as making a delicious jelly. I have a yard full of the white/purple ones too, but haven't picked any.
Wild violet jelly is a very fun process.
Violets are picked and steeped. The color turns to a beautiful blue color. Once the liquid is strained, and lemon juice added, it turns into a beautiful pink. It smells wonderful and tastes even better. A once a year jelly.
