A Lemon Syllabub

Lemons

To Make Lemon Syllabub

 
 
Elizabeth Raffald, The Experienced English Housekeeper, 1769
 
 
'To a pint of cream put a pound of double-refined sugar, the juice of seven lemons, grate the rinds of two lemons into a pint of white wine, add half a pint of sack, then put them all into a deep pot, and whisk them for half an hour, put it into glasses the night before you want it: it is better for standing two or three days, but it will keep a week if required.'
