Gooseberry Wine No 1

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

To every pound of white amber gooseberries, when heads and tails are

picked off and well bruised in a mortar, add a quart of spring water,

which must be previously boiled. Let it stand till it is cold before it

is put to the fruit. Let them steep three days, stirring them twice a

day; strain and press them through a sieve into a barrel, and to every

gallon of liquor put three pounds of loaf-sugar, and to every five

gallons a bottle of brandy. Hang a small bag of isinglass in the barrel;

bung it close, and, in six months, if the sweetness is sufficiently gone

off, bottle it, and rosin the corks well over the top. The fruit must be

fall grown, but quite green.
