blossoms in sugar will leech the flower properties into the sugar and naturally form a cough syrup over the course of several weeks. As the sugar collapses in the jar, you add more fresh blossoms.

Every other day I tried to add more blossoms and I think I've reached capacity on the syrup project. I just have to try and keep it in the sun now and let it all turn into delicious, medicinal goo.

@brettleeper no, you don't rinse the blossoms or add any. It's just the moisture contained in the plant material.

@raye cool. I certainly know a plant i can harvest seeds from and try next year but I missed its blooming season for this project.

@raye interesting. I was wondering how you debug the flowers?

@GwenfarsGarden debugging is as simple as letting the collecting blossoms sit on a plate or in a shallow dish outdoors for an hour or two. The bugs can tell the flowers are no longer on the plant and pretty much depart.

@raye oh wow, that's great. I didn't know it would be so easy. Good to know, thanks!
