To clarify red wine in winter. For a hogshead, take half a pound of new almonds, soak them in the same wine, and put them in the barrel without stirring. To remove redness from red wine in summer, take two fistfuls of wild mulberry leaves per hogshead, put them in the barrel without stirring, and tap the bung in.
