Take a Quart of Peas, boil them in two Gallons of Water till they are tender, then have ready a Piece of fait Pork, or Beef, which has been laid in Water the Night before; put it into the Pot, with two large Onions peeled, and a Bundle of Sweet Herbs, Salary if you have it, half a quarter of an Ounce of whole Pepper, let it boil till the Meat is enough, then take it up; and if the Soop is not enough, let it boil till the Soop is good; then Grain it, and set it on again to boil, and rub in a good deal of dry Mint. Keep the Meat hot, and when the Soop is ready, put in the Meat again for a few Minutes, and let it boil; then serve it away. If you add a Piece of the portable Soop, it will be very good. The Onion Soop you have in the Lent Chapter.
