Early American Orange Wine (1819)

"Take the expressed juice of eight Seville oranges; and, having one gallon of water wherein three pounds of sugar have been boiled, boil the water and sugar for twenty minutes. 

"Skim constantly, and when cooled to a proper heat for fermentation, add the juice, and the outer rind of the fruit, shaved off. 

"Put all into a barrel, stir it frequently for two or three days, and then closely bung it for six months before it is bottled."
