Elder-flower Wine

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

To six gallons of water put eighteen pounds of lump-sugar; boil it half

an hour, skimming it all the time. Put into a cask a quarter of a peck

of elder-flowers picked clean from the stalks, the juice and rinds of

six lemons pared very thin, and six pounds of raisins. When the water

and sugar is about milk warm, pour it into the cask upon these

ingredients; spread three or four spoonfuls of yest upon a piece of

bread well toasted, and put it into the cask; stir it up for three or

four days only; when it has done working, bung it up, and in six or

eight months it will be fit for bottling.
