Recipe: Fresh Green Pea Soup

(Very suitable for children.)

  •  1½ pounds POTATOES.
  •  2 onions.
  •  1 tablespoon sago.
  •  2 pints water.
  •  ½ pint milk.
  •  1½ ounces butter.
  •  1 teaspoon salt.
  •  ½ teaspoon pepper.

Peel and slice the POTATOES and onions, and fry them for ten minutes in the butter, but without browning them. Place them in a Saucepan with the water, salt and pepper (the latter should be omitted if for young children), and boil for an hour; add sago and milk, boil for about ten minutes, stirring all the time, then rub through a wire sieve with a wooden spoon, and serve.
