Instructions to Make Simple Syrups
Bring water and sugar to a boil in a medium saucepan. Stir until the sugar dissolves, then remove from heat. In a nonreactive bowl, combine the hot syrup with the edible flower petals of choice.
Let the mixture rest for 30 minutes. Strain syrup into an air tight container, to remove and discard the petals, and refrigerate. While refrigerated, the syrup can be used up to one month.
