PARSLEY AND BUTTER, to serve with Calf's Head. Boiled Fowls, &c.

Author: Top of the Rock Astronaut / Labels: , , ,

INGREDIENTS.--2 tablespoonfuls of minced parsley, 1/2 pint of melted butter.

Mode.--Put into a saucepan a small quantity of water, slightly salted, and when it boils, throw in a good bunch of parsley which has been previously washed and tied together in a bunch; let it boil for 5 minutes, drain it, mince the leaves very fine, and put the above quantity in a tureen; pour over it 1/2 pint of smoothly-made melted butter; stir once, that the ingredients may be thoroughly mixed, and serve.

Time.--5 minutes to boil the parsley.

Sufficient for 1 large fowl; allow rather more for a pair.

Seasonable at any time.

Note.--Sometimes, in the middle of winter, parsley-leaves are not to be had, when the following will be found an excellent substitute:--Tie up a little parsley-seed in a small piece of muslin, and boil it for 10 minutes in a small quantity of water; use this water to make the melted butter with, and throw into it a little boiled spinach, minced rather fine, which will have an appearance similar to that of parsley.
