  • 1 large carrot
  • 1 large onion
  • 1 large tomato
  • 1 small stick of celery
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 tablespoons pearl barley
  • 2 ounces butter
  • 1 1/2 pints water

and, tied in muslin,

  • 12 peppercorns
  • 2 cloves

Slice the vegetables, except the tomato, and fry in the butter until a nice brown; place in a stewpan together with the water, barley, salt and flavourings, and boil three-quarters of an hour. Add tomato sliced, simmer half an hour, stirring frequently, and strain. If required for masking, thicken with one ounce each of brown flour and butter.

Note. The vegetables and barley may be served as a stew, or used in various ways.
