________________________________________
 
•   1 gallon water
•   2 tsp cinnamon
•   a sprig of saffron
•   2 1/2 pounds of honey
•   1/2 cake yeast
•   2 tsp ginger
•   5 whole cloves
•   2 capfuls rosewater
•   12 ounces fruit or juice
Bring water to a boil with all the herbs so that a tea is formed. Add honey until dissolved, then add fruit or juice. Cover tightly and boil about 15 minutes. Cool to lukewarm and add yeast dissolved in warm water. Cover with towel for two days before straining and bottling.
You may have to air this periodically to prevent pressure buildup.
