To Clarify Syrup

Thumbnail of To Clarify Syrup recipe

To three pounds of loaf-sugar, add a quart of water, and half a white of egg; whisk all together in a stewpan or sugar-boiler, and set it to boil gently for five minutes, adding occasionally a little cold water; and then strain it through a napkin into a basin.

Sugar so clarified will prove on trial, with a syrup-gauge, to be of twenty-eight degrees' strength.
