Boiled Salsify


Scrape off the outer skin of the roots, cut in small pieces and throw into water with a little vinegar to prevent turning brown. Boil at least an hour, as they should be quite soft to be good. When done put in a little salt codfish picked very fine. Season with butter, salt, and cream, thickened with a little flour or cornstarch and serve with bits of toast. The fish helps to give it a sea-flavor. Instead of fish the juice of half a lemon may be used or it is good without any added flavor.
