Lemon-juice, Loaf sugar.

Squeeze some lemon-juice into a pan and with it mix some of the best loaf sugar, pounded and passed through a sieve. Make a paste so thick that it can scarcely be stirred, and place it in a porcelain saucepan over a hot fire, and stir for about 5 minutes with a wooden spoon.

Then remove it from the fire, and drop from the point of a knife, upon waxed paper - ordinary writing paper will do.

When cool, the drops may easily be removed from the paper. Peppermint drops may also be made in the same manner, by substituting the essence of peppermint, also orange-drops made by substituting the juice of oranges.
