Asparagus in a Rice Border

Method

The asparagus should not be of the thick kind. Cut in 11 inch lengths, and boil in salted water, but not too soft. When done, put them on a sieve to drain. Place them on a round dish in the centre of a rice border (this should be made in a mould) and pour over them the following sauce: Put 4 ozs. of butter in a saucepan and, when hot, stir in 1 oz. of flour, and add 1 gill of the water in which the asparagus was boiled. Add the yolks of 3 eggs, mixed with a little of the warm asparagus water, 1 tablespoon of lemon juice and a little sugar. Sprinkle finely chopped ham over the rice border.
