Another Hare Soup


  • a good-sized hare
  • 5 pints of good broth
  • a bunch of sweet herbs
  • 3 blades of mace
  • 3 large shalots, shred fine
  • 2 large onions
  • 1 head of celery
  • 12 white pepper
  • 8 cloves
  • a slice of ham


Half roast the hare; cut the back and legs in square pieces; stew the remaining part with the broth, sweet herbs, mace, shalots, onions, celery, white pepper, cloves, and ham. Simmer the whole together three hours; then strain and rub it through a hair sieve with a wooden spoon; return the gravy into a stewpan; throw in the back and legs, and let it simmer three quarters of an hour before you send it to table.
