A second Way to Roast a Leg of Mutton with Oysters


Stuff a Leg of Mutton with Mutton Sewet, Salt, Pepper, Nutmeg, and the Yolks of Eggs, then roast it, stick it all over with Cloves, and when it is about Half done cut off some of the Under-side of the fleshy End in little Bits, put these into a Pipkin with a Pint of Oysters, Liquor and all, a little Salt and Mace, and Half a Pint of hot Water; stew them till Half the Liquor is washed, then put in a Piece of Butter rolled in Flour, shake all together, and when the Mutton is enough take it up, poor this Sauce over it, and send it to Table.
