Gooseberry Vinegar

To every gallon of water take six pounds of full ripe gooseberries;

bruise them, and put them into a vessel, pouring the water cold upon

them. Set the vessel in a hot place till the gooseberries come to the

top, which they will do in about a fortnight; then draw off the liquor,

and, when you have taken the gooseberries out of the vessel, measure the

liquor into it again, and to every gallon put a pound of coarse sugar.

It will work again, and, when it has done working, stop it down close,

set it near the fire or in the sun: it will be fit for use in about six

months. If the vessel is not full, it will be ready sooner.
