Original Receipt from 'Modern Cookery for Private Families' by Eliza Acton: (Acton 1845)

Boil for about ten minutes, in half a pint of rich and highlyflavoured brown gravy, or Espagnole half the rind of a Seville orange, pared as thin as possible, and a small strip of lemon-rind, with a bit of sugar the size of a hazel-nut. Strain it off, add to it a quarter pint of port or claret, the juice of half a lemon, and a tablespoonful of Seville orange-juice: season it with cayenne, and serve it as hot as possible.
