Specialities from Isle of Rhé (Ile de Ré)

Crystalized violets and rose petals

I love crystalized violets and while we were strolling around in the markets I found crystalized rose petals. It was the first time I tasted the crystalized rose petals and I loved it, so I brought back a bag with a mix of crystalized rose petals and violets. We also bought sea salt flakes that is one of the main local speciality from the isle.
