    Greetings -
    I have made online searches, and queries to various gourmet food shops about tracking down 'bulk' (larger than the 0.5 ounce packages I've seen) purchases of candied violet petals - not the entire flower, but petals. While in a 1 yr culinary program years ago, I used them for decoration on various desserts. The school I attended purchased them in plain metal boxes, about 5 by 3 by 4 inches, filled with the candied petals - I'll guess and say it was 4-6 ounces of petals? I preferred using them much more than the entire flower. If anyone has a source they'd like to pass on, I'd very much appreciate it.
