To Preserve Barberries

Stone the Barberries in Sprigs; and to a Pound of Barberries make a

Syrup of a Pound and a Half of fine Sugar, with half a Pint of Water

to a Pound of Sugar: Put the Barberries in the Syrup, and let them

have a Boil; scald them every Day for four or five Days, but don't

let them boil: Put them in a Pot, and when you use any, heat the

rest, or they will not keep.
