Preparing to simmer mixture

7. Prepare to simmer

Put the pot cover on upside down. Put the pot of petals and water onto a burner on your stovetop.

Put the burner on low. The flame should not reach the top of the pot.

Add ice cubes in the middle of the upside-down lid that’s sitting on the pot. Keep the pot on the stove with the low flame. The ice cubes will speed up condensation inside the pot.
