Green Sauce for Green Geese or Ducklings


  • 1/4 pint of sorrel-juice
  • 1 glass of sherry
  • 1/2 pint of green gooseberries
  • 1 teaspoonful of pounded sugar
  • 1 ounce of fresh butter


Boil the gooseberries in water until they are quite tender; mash them and press them through a sieve; put the pulp into a saucepan with the above ingredients; simmer for 3 or 4 minutes, and serve very hot.

Time: 3 or 4 minutes.

Note: We have given this recipe as a sauce for green geese, thinking that some of our readers might sometimes require it; but, at the generality of fashionable tables, it is now seldom or never served.
