These are decorations for desserts. Do NOT use African violets! Make a syrup by stirring water into sugar in small saucepan. Boil till slightly thickened; stir in almond extract to taste. Let syrup cool a little. Place the violets, a few at a time into syrup. Make sure that they are completely covered. Remove from syrup and place on wax paper to dry. If syrup gets hard, reheat, adding a little more water.
