My goal this month is to write 50,000 intelligible words. When I get this done, I will be ready to go into editing and publishing of Knife’s Tell.

Compote of Gooseberries
Ingredients – to a pint of syrup allow nearly a quart of gooseberries.
Mode.- Top and tail the gooseberries, which should not be very ripe, and pour over them some boiling water; then take them out, and plunge them into cold water, with which has been mixed a tablespoonful of vinegar, which will assist to keep the fruit a good colour. Make a pint of syrup and when it boils, drain the gooseberries and put them in; simmer them gently until the fruit is nicely pulped and tender, without being broken; then dish the gooseberries on a glass dish, boil the syrup for two or three minutes, pour over the gooseberries, and serve cold.
