Take a Leg of Veal, about twelve or fourteen Pounds Weight, an old Cock skinned, chop both to Pieces, put it into a Pot with five or six Blades of Mace, some whole White Pepper, and three Gallons of Water, Half a Pound of Bacon, two Onions and six Cloves; cover it close, and when it boils Jet it do very softly, till the Meat is good for nothing and above two Thirds is wasted, then strain it, the next Day put this Soop into a Sauce-pan, with a Pound of Rice, set it over a very slow Fire, take great Care it don’t burn, when the Rice is very thick and dry turn it into a Dish. Garnish with hard Eggs cut in two, and have roasted Fowls in another Dish.

Note, You are to observe, if your Rice simmers too fast it will burn, when it comes to be thick; it must be very thick and dry, and not the Rice boiled to a Mummy.
