Thumbnail of Punch Jelly recipe

Put the following ingredients into a stewpan: four ounces of gelatine, ten ounces of sugar, a gill of brandy, a gill of rum, the juice of six lemons, the peel of three, a stick of cinnamon, twelve cloves, twenty coriander-seeds, and half a nutmeg grated; add a pint of water and four whites of eggs, well whisked together; whisk the jelly on the fire until it boils, and then allow it to stand down by the side, with the lid on, containing live embers of charcoal, for about a quarter of an hour; pour the jelly through the bag several times, until it runs bright, and when all has run through, set in its mould in rough ice.
