To Make Syrup for Compotes, etc.


To every pound of sugar allow 1 1/2 pints of water.


Boil the sugar and water together for 1/4 hour, carefully removing the scum as it rises: the syrup is then ready for the fruit. The articles boiled in this syrup will not keep for any length of time, it being suitable only for dishes intended to be eaten immediately. A larger proportion of sugar must be added for a syrup intended to keep.

Time: 1/4 hour.
