Remove any insects or debris from flowers. Do not wash or soak or they will lose their flavor.

Over medium heat combine sugar, water, and citric acid in a saucepan. Stir until hot and the sugar has completely dissolved. Remove from heat. Let the syrup cool to room temperature.

Put blossoms, lemon , and orange slices in a large bowl.

Add the syrup to the blossoms covering them completley.

Cover the bowl with a towel and let sit for 2 days, stirring occasioanly.

Afer 2 days strain the syrup through a fine sieve or cheesecloth into a bottle. We used a clean dish towel.

The syrup is stored best in a cool temperature.
