    Thanks Farslufen

    On the last page of the Hebrew Books copy there is a handwritten note in English, would be interesting to know who wrote that and waht is says, anyone to decipher?

    I also note a diffrent printing company on the copy of hebrew Books:

    “J.H. Kantrowitz, Hebrew Bookseller, 31 East Broadway NY”
    (which was BTW owened by Reb Yeruchem Tzvi Kantrowitz

    And the one from Virtual Jadaica seen in this post is from:

    “Printed in the office of the Israelitische Presse 199 S. Clark St.”

    It’s a recipe:

    For wine:
    1 lb. raisins to 1 qt. water. Chop the raisins and soak three days. Add a little sugar to keep from souring. Add hops to (illegible).

    For (illegible)
    1 lb. sugar to 2 quarts water. Boil away (illegible) Then put in yeast from the wine to ferment it. Strain and color with burnt sugar. Put in hops while mixing.

    The second recipe is for mead. Interesting: chometz recipe in a Hagada.

    Thanks Jim and Leibel,

    Interesting place to write down recipes.

    Correction: Hops are not necessarily Chometz.
