Item, and if you want to make this Must Sauce after Saint John's Day and before you can find any grapes, you can make it of cherries, wild cherries, heart-cherries, mulberry wine, with powdered cinnamon, without ginger, even a little, boil as above, then put sugar on it.

Item, and after grapes can no longer be found, as in November, make the Must Sauce with hedge-sloes, take out the seeds, then grind or crush in the mortar, boil with the skins on, then pass through a sieve, add powdered spices, and the rest as above.
