Plumm Pottage

Disclaimer!
This is a very old recipe and I take NO responsibility for how it tastes!

Take of Beef-soup made of Legs of Beef, 12 Quarts; if you wish it to be particularly good, add a couple of Tongues to be boil'd therein.

Put fine Bread, slic'd, soak'd, and crumbled; Raisins of the Sun, Currants and Pruants two Lbs. of each; Lemons, Nutmegs, Mace and Cleaves are to be boil'd with it in a muslin Bag; add a Quart of Red Wine and let this be follow'd, after half an Hour's boyling, by a Pint of Sack.

Put it into a cool Place and it will keep through.
