- 1 ounce of rice
- 1 ounce of sago
- 1 ounce of pearl barley
- 1 ounce of candied eringo root
- 2 quarts of water
Simmer it over the fire till it is reduced to one quart; strain it. This will produce a strong jelly; a little to be dissolved in white wine or warm milk, and to be taken three or four times a day.
The Lady's Own Cookery Book (1844).
