Method

Infuse Peach Blossoms in hot Water, as much as will handsomely cover them. Let them stand in Balneo, or in Sand, for twenty-four Hours covered close; then strain out the Flowers from the Liquor, and put in fresh Flowers. Let them stand to infuse as before, then strain them out, and to the Liquor put fresh Peach-Blossoms the third time, and if you please, a fourth time. Then to every Pound of your Infusion, add two Pounds of double-refined Sugar, and setting it in Sand or Balneo, make a Syrup, which keep for use.
