Goosberries Preserved.

Let your Goosberries be gather'd with their stalks on, cut off their heads and stone them, then put them in Scalding-water, and let them stand therein covered a little while; then take their weight of Sugar finely beaten, and lay first a layer of Sugar, then one of Goosberries in your Preserving pan or Skillet till all be in, putting in for every pound of Goosberries a spoonful of fair water, set them on the Embers till the Sugar be melted, then boil them up as fast as you can, till lthe Syrrup be thick enough; when cold, put them up. In this manner you may preserve Raspices and Mulberries.
