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.
