To Make Pomegranate Clear-cakes
Make a strong Pippin-Jelly, and slice a Lemmon into it, Rind and
all; boil it well, and run it thro' the Jelly-bag again; then colour
it as you like it: To a Pint of the Jelly take half a Quarter of
Orange-Syrup, made as for Orange Clear-Cakes; let it have a Boil
together, and boil a Pound and a Half of Sugar to a Candy; put your
Jelly to the Candy, a little at a Time, 'till the Sugar has done
boiling, then put in all the rest; scald it 'till the Candy is well
melted, fill it in Pots, and dry it as other Clear-Cakes.
The Colour is made thus: Take as much Carmine as you can have for
Half-a-Crown, put to it two Ounces of Sugar, and as much Water as
will wet it; give it a Boil, and then colour your Jelly with it.
