Pick the stalks from the greengages or greengage-plums (for these serve the purpose quite as well, and are not so expensive) into dry, clean bottles; fill them up with syrup, No. 842; cork and tie them down with string; give them a quarter of an hour's gentle ebullition; and when cold, wax over the nozzles, and put them in a cold place.
