Steep Carragua, or Irish moss, in cold water a few minutes, to extract
the bitter taste--then drain off the water, and to half an ounce of moss
put a quart of fresh water, and a stick of cinnamon. Boil it till it
becomes a thick jelly, then strain it, and season it to the taste with
white wine and white sugar. This is very nourishing, and recommended
highly for consumptive complaints.
