This is one of a number of historical recipes I am posting from my cookbook collection. This recipe is adapted from the Rumford Complete Cookbook. The recipe title is not a misspelling. Cook time is chilling time. Number of servings is a guess.

- 2 apples, peeled, cored and chopped
- 1 cup celery, chopped

- Combine all ingredients and mix well.
