Sago Sauce For Sweet Puddings


  • 1 tablespoonful of sago
  • 1/3 pint of water
  • 1/4 pint of port or sherry
  • rind and juice of 1 small lemon
  • sugar to taste
  • when the flavour is liked, a little pounded cinnamon


Wash the sago in two or three waters; then put it into a saucepan, with the water and lemon-peel; let it simmer gently by the side of the fire for 10 minutes; then take out the lemon-peel, add the remaining ingredients, give one boil, and serve. Be particular to strain the lemon-juice before adding it to the sauce. This, on trial, will be found a delicious accompaniment to various boiled puddings, such as those made of bread, raisins, rice, etc.

Time: 10 minutes.

Sufficient for 7 or 8 persons.
