Carefully rinse the violet petals in running, clear, cool water. Drain and place in a blender, along with the juice of the lime and the 3/4 cup water. Blend to form a smooth puree and set aside.
In a small saucepan, combine the sugar, the pectin and 3/4 cup water. Place over high heat and boil for one minute. Add to violet puree and blend for one minute. Pour into sterilized baby food jars (any very small jars will do.) Cover and store in the refrigerator (it will keep for up to 3 months.)
