Mead. No. 2


  • 10 quarts of honey
  • 30 quarts of water
  • 1 ounce of cinnamon
  • 1 ounce of cloves
  • 2 ounces of ginger
  • 2 large nutmegs


The honey boiled one hour with the water; when cold, put it into a cask, and add to it the cinnamon, cloves, ginger, and nutmegs, to be pounded first, and suspended in a linen bag in the barrel from the bung-hole. The scum must be filtered through a flannel bag.
