Brown Colouring

Thumbnail of Brown Colouring recipe

Put two ounces of common sugar in a stewpan with a spoonful of water, and set it to boil on the fire; as soon as the sugar begins to gain any colour, slacken the heat, and continue stirring with a wooden spoon so that it may bake slowly, and become nearly black by degrees without being calcined or burnt; when sufficiently baked, add a pint of water, boil and skim it for five minutes, and when cold, bottle it off for use as occasion requires.
