Oranges, 4,

White sugar, 1 pound,

Lemon, 1,

Water, 1 pint.

Take the rind from two of the oranges, grate it, and add to it the sugar and water. Stir together until the sugar is entirely dissolved, bring it to a boil, and continue to boil longer for 5 minutes.

When it has boiled 5 minutes take it from the fire, and when cold add the lemon and orange juices, and also about 1 quart of cold water, which is poured over it over cracked ice.
