Take the ripest blackberries. Mash them, put them in a linen bag
and squeeze out the juice. To every quart of juice allow a pound
of beaten loaf-sugar. Put the sugar into a large preserving
kettle, and pour the juice on it. When it is all melted, set it on
the fire, and boil it to a thin jelly. When cold, to every quart
of juice allow a quart of brandy. Stir them well together, and
bottle it for use. It will be ready at once.

Other Recipes

Ginger Beer

Boil gently, in a gallon of water, three table-spoonsful of cream of

tartar, three of ginger, and a lemon cut in slices. When it has boiled

half an hour, take it from the fire, strain and sweeten it to your

taste--white sugar is the best, but brown sugar or molasses answers very

well. Put to it, when lukewarm, half a pint of fresh yeast. Turn it off

carefully, when fermented, bottle it, and keep it in a cool place. It

will be fit to drink in the course of seven or eight days.

three ounces of ginger, bruised, and the juice and rind of two lemons.

When almost cold, put in a toast spread with yest; let it ferment three

stood ten days, bottle it off, and it will be fit to drink in a

fortnight, if warm weather.
