Cheap Gravy for Minced Veal


  • bones and trimmings of cold roast or boiled veal
  • 1 1/2 pints of water
  • 1 onion
  • 1/4 teaspoonful of minced lemon-peel
  • 1/4 teaspoonful of salt
  • 1 blade of pounded mace
  • juice of 1/4 lemon
  • thickening of butter and flour


Put all the ingredients into a stewpan, except the thickening and lemon-juice, and let them simmer very gently for rather more than 1 hour, or until the liquor is reduced to a pint, when strain through a hair-sieve. Add a thickening of butter and flour, and the lemon-juice; set it on the fire, and let it just boil up, when it will be ready for use. It may be flavoured with a little tomato sauce, and, where a rather dark-coloured gravy is not objected to, ketchup, or Harvey's sauce, may be added at pleasure.

Time: Rather more than 1 hour.
