Method

Take twelve Golden Pippins, pare them, put the Parings into a Sauce-pan, with Water enough to cover them, a Blade of Mace, two or three Cloves, a Piece of Lemon-peal, let them simmer till there is just enough to stew the Pippins in, then strain it, and put it into the Sauce-pan again, with Sugar enough to make it like a Syrrup; then put them in a Preserving-pan, or clean Stew-pan, or large Sauce-pan, and pour the Syrrup over them. Let there be enough to stew them in; when they are enough, which you will know by the Pippins being soft, take them up, lay them in a little Dish with the Syrrup; when cold, serve them up; or hot, if you chuse it.
