This recipe was created because we were at the wonderful Radiance Dairy in Fairfield, Iowa and wanted to try their yogurt -- also their fields were full of violets. These mystical flowers have many health benefits including bountiful Vitamin C and anti-oxidants. The blueberries are included because the violet color didn't come through when I first made it on the road -- they should make it seem a little more like a violet drink. Alternatively, you can take out the honey and blueberries and use this as a sauce for a light fish, or serve it with dandelion fritters (recipe also on food52). —The Perennial Plate
