To keep Green Peas till Christmas

Method

Take fine young Peas shell them, throw them into boiling Water with some Salt in, let them boil five or six Minutes, throw them into a Cullendar to drain, then lay a Cloth four or five times double on a Table and spread them on, dry them very well, and have your Bottles ready, fill them and cover them with Mutton Fat try’d, and when it is a little cool fill the Necks almost to the Top, and cork them, tie a Bladder and a Lath over, and set them in a cool dry Place. When you use them boil your Water, put in a little Salt, some Sugar, and a Piece of Butter; when they are boiled enough, throw them into a Sieve to drain, then put them into a Sauce-pan with a good Piece of Butter, keep shaking it round all the time till the Butter is melted, then turn them into a Dish, and send them to Table.
