Take a Pottle

IMG_8223-001   Take a pottle of Cream, and boil in it a little whole Cinnamon, and three or four flakes of Mace.  This is the first line of the receipt (recipe) of My Lord of Carlisle’s Sack Posset.   A pottle is an old English liquid measure equal to two quarts.  I started with a half-gallon of cream and you can see the stick of Ceylon cinnamon and few blades of mace added.
