Mead. No. 3


  • 8 gallons of spring water
  • 12 pounds of honey
  • 4 pounds of powdered sugar
  • 2 or 3 lemon-peels


Take the spring water, honey, powdered sugar; boil them for an hour, keeping it well skimmed. Let it stand all night; the next day, put it into your vessel, keeping back the sediment; hang in your vessel the lemon-peels; then stop it up close; in the summer, bottle it in six weeks.
