Moss Jelly

October 21st, 2015

Steep Carragua, or Irish moss, in cold water a few minutes, to extract the bitter taste–then drain off the water, and to half an ounce of moss put a quart of fresh water, and a stick of cinnamon. Boil it till it becomes a thick jelly, then strain it, and season it to the taste with white wine and white sugar. This is very nourishing, and recommended highly for consumptive complaints.
