Onion Soup. No. 2


  • 3 pounds of veal
  • handful of sweet herbs
  • a little mace
  • 25 onions
  • 1 pint of cream
  • salt
  • cayenne pepper


Boil the veal with the sweet herbs, and mace; when well boiled strain it through a sieve, skim off all the fat. Pare the onions; boil them soft, rub them through a sieve, and mix them with the veal gravy and the cream, salt, and cayenne pepper, to your taste. Give it a boil and serve up; but do not put in the cream till it comes off the fire.
