To Make Red Plum-paste

Take half white and half red Plums, as you did for the Clear-Cakes;

boil them with as much Water as will cover them; then, to a Quart of

Plums put a Pint of Apple-Jelly; let them boil well together; rub it

thro' an Hair Sieve; to a Pint of Jelly put in a Pound and half of

Sugar; boil the Jelly, and shake in the Sugar; let it scald 'till

the Sugar is melted, skin it well, and fill in Pots; dry it as other

Cakes: You may put some of this in Plates, and make Fruit-Jambals.
