Eringo-roots Preserv'd.

Take Eringo-roots fair, and not knotty, one pound, and wash them clean, then set them on the fire, and boil them very tender, peel off their outer-most skin, but break them not as you pare them; then let them lye a while in cold water; after this you must take to every pound of roots three quarters of a pound of clarified Sugar and boil it almost to the height of a Syrrup, and, then put in your roots, but look that they boil but gently together, and stir them as little as may be, for fear of breaking; when they are cold, put them up and keep them.
