To every pint of new milk allow

  • 2 dessertspoonfuls of brandy
  • 1 dessertspoonful of sugar
  • 1 1/2 dessertspoonful of prepared rennet
  • thick cream
  • pounded cinnamon or grated nutmeg


Make the milk blood-warm; put it into a deep dish with the brandy, sugar, and rennet; stir it altogether, and cover it over until it is set. Then spread some thick or clotted cream over the top, grate some nutmeg, and strew some sugar over, and the dish will be ready to serve.

Time: About 2 hours to set the milk.

Seasonable at any time.
