Beverage Recipes

Note: None of these recipes have been tested by Genealogy Trails.


White Spruce Beer

Mix together three pounds of loaf sugar, five gallons of water, a cup of good yeast, adding a small piece of lemon-peel, and enough essence of spruce to give it flavor. When fermented, preserve in close bottles. Molasses or common brown sugar can be used, if necessary, instead of loaf, and the lemon peel left out. Sometimes, when unable to obtain the essence of spruce, then we have boiled down the twigs. This will be found a delightful home drink.
