Pick 5pts. of catawaba grapes from the stem (Concords or Delawares will do, but are not so tart); wash them and let drain; then simmer till they are so soft you can rub all but the seeds through a colander(I think grape seeds will go through an ordinary colander, a wire sieve would be better) with care. After this is done add 2 pts. of brown sugar, 2 pt. of vinegar, 2 teaspoonfuls of each of allspice and cloves, and 1 tablespoonful of cinnamon, 1 1/2 teaspoonfuls of mace, 1 of salt, and 1/2 a teaspoonful of red pepper. Put all into a porcelain kettle, let them boil slowly until they are as thick as you like catsup to be. Bottle, cork and seal.
