To boil a Leg of Mutton


Take a fair leg of mutton, boil it in water and salt, make sauce with gravy, wine vinegar, white wine, salt, butter, nutmeg, and strong broth; and being well stewed together, dish it up on fine carved sippets, and pour on your broth.

Garnish your dish with barberries, capers, and slic’t lemon, and garnish the leg of mutton with the same garnish and run it over with beaten butter, slic’t lemon, and grated nutmeg.
