Put your Petty-Toes into a Sauce-pan with Half a Pint of Water, a Blade of Mace, a little whole Pepper, a Bundle of Sweet Herbs, and an Onion; let them boil five Minutes, then take out the Liver, Lights, and Heart, mince them very fine, grate a little Nutmeg over them, and shake a little Flour on them; let the Feet do till they are tender, then take them out and Brain the Liquor, put all together with a little Salt and a Piece of Butter as big as a Walnut, shake the Sauce-pan often, let it simmer five or six Minutes, then cut some toasted Sippets and lay round the Dish, lay the Mince-Meat and Sauce in the Middle, and the Petty-Toes split round it. You may add the Juice of Half a Lemon, or a very little Vinegar.
