To preserve Mulberries dry. The mulberries must not be too ripe, but rather a reddish green, and tart: having prepared the same quantity of blown sugar as of fruit, put in the mulberries and let them boil; the sugar should be first clarified with the juice of mulberries instead of water: when they have boiled take the pan from the fire, scum it, and set it in a stove till next day; then take them out, drain them from the syrup, and put them up in boxes for use. ---The Ladies Assistant. 1787.
