Elder Wine No 4

(Wines, Cordials, Liqueurs, &c.) - (The Lady's Own Cookery Book)

Mash eight gallons of picked elderberries to pieces, add as much spring

water as will make the whole nine gallons, and boil slowly for three

quarters of an hour. Squeeze them through a cloth sieve; add

twenty-eight pounds of moist sugar, and boil them together for half an

hour. Run the liquor through your cloth sieve again; let it stand till

lukewarm; put into it a toast with a little yest upon it, and let it

stand for seven or eight days, stirring it every day. Then put it into a

close tub, and let it remain without a bung till it has done hissing.

Before you bung up close, you may add one pint of brandy at pleasure.
