Simple Blacking Balls Cooking Recipe

Below is the quick and easy cooking recipe for Blacking Balls.

Portable shoe-blacking, in the form of cakes or balls, is made in the following manner. Take four ounces of mutton suet, one ounce of bees-wax, one3 of sweet oil, and a dram each of powdered sugar-candy and gum-arabac. Melt them well together over a slow fire. Add a spoonful of turpentine, and lamp-black sufficient to give it a good black colour. While hot enough to run, make the composition into a ball, by pouring it into a tin mould. Or let it stand till nearly cold, and then it may be moulded into any form by the hand.
