Method

Dip the stalks and leaves in white wine vinegar boiling, then scald them in syrup; take them out and boil them to a candy height; dip in the cherries, and hang them to dry with the cherries downwards. Dry them before the fire, or in the sun. Then take the plumbs, after boiling them in a thin syrup, peel off the skin and candy them, and so hang them up to dry.
