To make Elder Flower Wine

Aus: Mrs. Eales Compleat Confectioner (1718-1742), Teil 2, S. 076


To twelve Gallons of Water put thirty Pounds of Loaf Sugar; boil it till two Gallons are consumed, scuming it well. Let it stand till it be as cool as Wort; then put in two or three Spoonsful of Yeast. When it works put in two Quarts of Elder Flowers pick’d from the Stalks, stiring it every Day till it has done working, which will not be in less than five or six Days; then strain it, and put it into the Vessel. After it is stopt down let it stand till it is fine, and then bottle it.
