Method

Take the best treble-refined Sugar, break it into Lumps, and dip it, Piece by Piece, in Water, put them into a Vessel of Silver, and melt them over the Fire. When it just boils, strain it, and set it on the Fire again, and let it boil, till it draws in Hairs, which you may perceive by holding up your Spoon; then put in your Flowers, and let them in Cups or Glasses; and when it is of a hard Candy, break it in Lumps, and lay it as high as you please. Dry it in a Stow, or in the Sun, and it will look like Sugar-Candy.
