Ollo, a Spanish Dish


  • 2 pounds beef
  • 1 pound mutton
  • 1 chicken, or 1/2 pullet
  • small piece of pork
  • 1 onion chopped small
  • pepper
  • salt
  • 2 or 3 apples or pears, peeled and cut in two
  • tomatos with the skin taken off
  • cimblins cut in pieces
  • handful of mint chopped
  • lima beans, snaps, and any kind of vegetable you like


Take the beef, mutton, chicken, and pork; put them into a pot with very little water, and set it on the fire at ten o'clock, to stew gently; you must sprinkle over it the onion, some pepper and salt, before you pour in the water; at half after twelve, put into the pot the apples or pears, tomatos, cimblins, mint, lima beans, snaps, and any kind of vegetable you like; let them all stew together till three o'clock; some cellery tops cut small, and added at half after two, will improve it much.
