Getting started

Fill 1/3 of the ice lolly moulds with the edible flowers. Pour one part syrup and two parts water in a jug. Pour the liquid carefully into the lolly moulds. Pour up to 1cm from the top edge of the moulds. Seal the top of the ice lolly moulds and place the sticks through the holes. Let the ice lollies freeze for at least one day. When you want to remove the lollies from the moulds, hold them under warm water for a moment, which will make it easier to remove them.
