Ching Ching (c.1909) ★
My parents-in-law were kind enough to purchase a new blender for us, after I broke our last one, so now I have more tools with which to make historical recipes! The easiest way to make shaved ice is with a blender; even our crappy old one could handle that.
Ohhh the burning! I used like 3 tiiiiiny drops of clove oil and it burned my throat! Also, this smelled like some kind of gross medicine. I couldn't even drink it. Maybe if it was watered down with 4 cups of shaved ice...
(Adapted from The Good Housekeeping Woman's Home Cook Book)

1 drop ESSENCE OF CLOVES
1 drop ESSENCE OF PEPPERMINT
1. Juice the orange. Stir in the sugar and essences.
2. Shave the ice in a blender. Put it into a glass and pour the orange juice mix over top.
