Barberry Drops

Sweets
Historic

Barberries pulp with sugar, dried-out on paper (Moxon 1764, Eaton 1822).


Original Receipt in 'English Housewifry' by Elizabeth Moxon, 1764 (Moxon 1764)

46. BARBERRY DROPS.
When the barberries are full ripe, pull 'em off the stalk, put them in a pot, and boil them in a pan of water till they are soft, then pulp them thro' a hair-sieve, beat and searce the sugar, and mix as much of the searc'd sugar with the pulp, as will make it of the consistance of a light paste; then drop them with a pen-knife on paper (glaz'd with a slight stone) and set them within the air of the fire for an hour, then take them off the paper and keep them dry.
