Apple Toddy
“The Great Western Cook Book”, by Anna Maria Collins, 1857

Roast or bake three fine pippins; let them be thoroughly done; put them in a bowl, beat them well with sugar, to your taste; pour over them a half pint of brandy, beat well; then add a pint of water, beat again, so as to have it well compounded; add a few cloves, and half a nutmeg.

Thanks. I notice the recipe does not say to heat the liquid.
I noticed that, too, and thought it odd! But, I wonder if the apples, still warmed from being roasted or baked, would be a sufficient amount of heat? Or, did the author take it for granted that the reader would know to heat it?....hmmmmm.....
