To make Wormwood-Cakes

Aus: Mrs. Eales Compleat Confectioner (1718-1742), S. 067


Sift fine Sugar thro’ an Hair Sieve, and cover it with Carmine; wet it more than a Candy with Water; boil it pretty fast ’till it is almost at a Candy Height; then put in about three Drops of Spirit of Wormwood, and fill it into little Coffins made of Cards; when it boils in the Coffins it is enough; you must not boil above half a Pound at a Time, or less: The Spirit of Wormwood must be that which looks black, and as thick as Oil, and must have two or three Boils in the Cakes after you put it in.
