"Take freshly gathered Apricots not too ripe; to Half their Weight of
loaf Sugar, add as much Water as will cover the Fruit; boil and skim
it: then put in the Apricots, and let them remain five or six Minutes;
take them up without Syruup, and ;ay them on Dishes to cool; boil the
Syrup till reduced one Half; when the Apricots are cold, put them in
Bottles, and cover them with equal Quantities of syrup and French
Brandy. If the Apricots be clingstone, they will require more
