trying to find violet extract/ essence

Haven't a clue what galangal is, or need to know what to use if you can't buy creme fraiche locally? We're sure our knowledgeable members will be able to point you in the right direction...

trying to find violet extract/ essence

I wondered if anyone could help me, I was hoping to make some rose and violet creams as Christmas gifts, but am struggling to get hold of a violet essence or extract. Could anyone point me in the right direction please?

Many thanks

Thank you for your help Stephanie, I have found one on ebay, but worry about buying edible products off ebay, not sure what you're going to get! plus it is an artificial flavour, I was hoping for a more natural extract. I'm told violet is very popular in France, have found a French website that I think is selling the real thing but my French isn't that great, and they sell in catering sizes, a lot more than I require, so it works out quite pricey!

Will keep on looking

Perhaps one of our lovely members in France would be able to help you there!

That would be great, fingers crossed!
I have found a UK company that have a stock of French violet syrup, but have read that these are not usually strongly flavoured enough, and the amount I would need to add may make my violet creams taste 'violety' enough may make them a little too sloppy.
Thanks for your reply

Have you tried shops specialising in cake decorating materials? They may be able to get some to order.

Abbe, so sorry that it wasn't stocked. There was such a wide range of extracts, including orange and rose. I did ask at customer service too. Sorry to have inadvertently mislead you.

Violet extract

I just ordered some from USA, Vitamin life.com

Came to $17 including shipping, I know that it's passed Christmas now, but I came across your enquiry whilst searching the Internet myself.

Hope this helps.
