Cut the meat and vegetables in slices, add to them the rice and peas, season with pepper and salt. Put the whole in a jar, fill up with the water, cover very closely, and bake for 4 hours.
Time: 4 hours.
Seasonable at any time.
Sufficient for 10 or 12 persons.
Note: This will be found a very cheap and wholesome soup, and will be convenient in those cases where baking is more easily performed than boiling.
