    | 1. Gather and gently rinse all of your pesticide-free blossoms. | 2. Boil water for 2 minutes for all the air trapped in the water to escape. Then leave to cool till room temperature. This will ensure that the ice cubes are crystal clear. | 3. Place each blossom at the base of each individual compartment within an ice tray (or more trays if you have a large party). | 4. Fill each compartment half full with the cooled boiled water and freeze. | 5. After the water is frozen solid, fill each ice cube compartment the rest of the way to the top with the remaining boiled water. | 6. Refreeze and allow it to remain in the freezer until you are ready to use them (store in the freezer in zip lock bags). | 7. NOTE: You can also freeze a large ice ring for the punch bowl, with a variety of blossoms. Don't use the glass punchbowl or it will expand and burst in the freezer. Instead, use a ring-shaped cake tin and fill it with flowers and water. Follow the same procedure as above (filling halfway, then freezing), but you can add additional blossoms to the second layer so that the blossoms are throughout the large ice ring. | 8. Use the ice cubes in pitchers or glasses of lemonade, iced tea, juices, punches and cocktails. | ---------------------------------------------------------------------------
