Classic Cook Books : Eighteenth Century, Mrs. Mary Eale's Receipts, Confectioner to her late Majesty Queen Anne (1733)
Recipes for deserts. The first reads: "To dry ANGELICA. Take the Stalks of Angelica, and boil them tender; then put them to drain, and scrape off all the thin Skin, and put them into scalding Water; keep them close cover'd, and over a slow Fire, not to boil, 'till they are green; then draining them well, put them in a very thick Syrup of the Weight and half of Sugar: Let the Syrup be cold when you put them in, and warm it every Day 'till it is clear, when you may lay them out to dry, sifting Sugar upon them. Lay out but as much as you use at a Time, and scald the rest."
