Method

Mix Yolks of Eggs and Flower together into a pretty stiff Paste, so as you can work it up cleverly, then roll it as thin as it is possible to roll the Paste. Let it dry in the Sun; and when it is quite dry, with a very sharp Knife cut it as thin as possible, and keep it in a dry Place, it will run up like little Worms, as Vermicella does; though the best way is to run it through a coarse Sieve, whilst the Paste is soft. If you want some to be made in haste, dry it by the Fire, and cut it small. It will dry by the Fire in a quarter of an Hour. This far exceeds what comes from abroad being fresher.
