Palermo Wine

Take to every quart of water one pound of Malaga raisins, rub and cut the raisins small, and put them to the water, and let them stand ten days, stirring once or twice a day. You may boil the water an hour before you put it to the raisins, and let it stand to cool.  At ten days’ end strain out your liquor, and put a little yeast to it; and at three days’ end put it in the vessel, and one sprig of dried wormwood. Let it be close stopped, and at three months’ end bottle it off.

Abundance is a blessing to the wise; The use of riches in discretion lies. Learn this, ye men of wealth—a heavy purse in a fool’s pocket is a heavy curse.
