Orange Wine No 2

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

To make ten gallons of wine, pare one hundred oranges very thin, and put

the peel into a tub. Put in a copper ten gallons of water, with

twenty-eight pounds of common brown sugar, and the whites of six eggs

well beaten; boil it for three quarters of an hour; just as it begins to

boil, skim it, and continue to do so all the time it is boiling; pour

the boiling liquor on the peel: cover it well to keep in the steam, and,

two hours afterwards, when blood warm, pour in the juice. Put in a toast

well spread with yest to make it work. Stir it well, and, in five or six

days, put it in your cask free from the peel; it will then work five or

six days longer. Then put in two quarts of brandy, and bung it close.

Let it remain twelve or eighteen months, and then bottle it. It will

keep many years.
