Default Clary Sage Wine

Clary Wine
10 gallons water
35 lb loaf sugar
12 eggs
2 pecks of clary blossoms
1 pint good new yeast
Mix sugar, water and well-beaten egg whites. Let boil gently for hour, skimming until the mixture is quite clear. Let stand until cold. Pour into a cask, add 2 pecks of clary blossoms stripped from the stalk and 1 pint of yeast. Stir the wine three times a day for five days. Stop it up, and let stand for twelve months. It may be bottled at the end of six months if perfectly clear.




Obviously a very old recipe. Someone brew this and let me know how it goes.

Ah, it's a flower?
Salvia sclarea - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

What I want to know is, why would someone put eggs into wine?

Ya, the whole eggs thing sounded gross to me. apparantly the clary sage will get you super drunk but may give you a headache after. Obviously a very old recipe.

Sounds like a country wine in the truest sense of the word. Nothing ventured, nothing gained - right?

I wonder just exactly which "Clary" they refer to?

Clary, common name of the flowering plant Salvia sclarea
Annual clary, common name of the flowering plant Salvia viridis
Balkan clary, common name of the flowering plant Salvia nemorosa
Meadow clary, common name of the flowering plant Salvia pratensis
Silvery clary, common name of the flowering plant Salvia argentea
Sticky clary, common name of the flowering plant Salvia glutinosa
Whorled clary, common name of the flowering plant Salvia verticillata
Wild clary, common name of the flowering plant Salvia verbenacea
Yellow clary, common name of the flowering plant Phlomis fruticosa

All but one listed here are in the genus salvia; there is another salvia (salvia divinorum) that has psychoactive (hallucinogenic) compounds in it. I wonder if any of the other salvias have the same, or similar properties? You never know with some of these ancient recipes. It's just one of those things you think about when there's nothing worth watching on TV. Regards, GF.
EDIT: BTW, salvia divinorum is ILLEGAL in the USA & likely in most of Europe as well. Regards, GF.

Huh, so that's what my cousin smoked. And yeah it's still legal in some states at least.
