Put 3 gallons of water over the fire. Let boil then add 9 lb of white sugar. When this boils, add the white of one egg, well beaten. Let boil about 5 minutes then strain the white of egg off. Take from the fire and add 1 quart of Elder Blossoms picked from the stem and pressed hard in a qt cup when cold, add 3 tablespoons of lemon juice and one cake of yeast let stand for 6 days stirring every day then strain. Add 3 pounds of raisins. Let stand until December then it is ready to use. The wine should be made the same day the blossoms are picked. [From the collection of Mrs. W.M. Douglas, Kansas City, MO, c. 1918]
