A very ole recipe
Apeck of black wild cherries, soaked in cold water for 24 hours. Put them in a demifobn ( think its a bowl or cup..) add two pounds of brown sugar and two quarts of black berries and a gallon of the best New England Rum you can find, the older the better.
Sailors were given this at Christmas in 1864, the soldiers in the fields were not this lucky.
