Sirup Of Buckthorn (2)

Take three quarts of the juice of clarified buckthorn berries, and four pounds of brown sugar; make them into a sirup over a gentle fire, and while warm, mix with it a drachm of the distilled oil of cloves, dissolved on a lump of sugar. The true buckthorn may be known by the number of its seeds, having four, the alder buckthorn has only two, and the cherry buckthorn one seed. The former is to be used.
