DESCRIPTION: A recipe for cider

To make Cider.

Take a peck of Apples, and slice them, and boil them in a barrel of water, till the third part be wasted: then cool your water as you do for wort, and when it is cold you must pour the water upon three measures of grown Apples. Then draw forth the water at a tap three or four times a day, for three days together. Then press out the liquor, and run it up; when it hath done working, then stop it up close.
