To make perfum’d Pastels

Aus: Mrs. Eales Compleat Confectioner (1718-1742), S. 094


Take a Pound of Sugar sifted thro’ a Lawn Sieve, two Grains of Amber-Grease, one Grain of Musk; grind the Amber and Musk very fine, mix it with the Sugar, make it up to a Paste with Gum-Dragon well steep’d in Orange-Flower-Water, and put in a Spoonful of Ben; beat the Paste well in a Mortar, then roll it pretty thin, cut the Pastels with a small Thimble, and print them with a Seal; let them lye on Papers to dry; when they are dry, put them in a Glass that has a Cover, or in some close Place, where they may not lose their Scent.
