Three lumps or more of sugar, or a small piece of sugar-candy.
A tablespoonful of lemon-juice.
One inch of liquorice.
Wash the linseed carefully. Put it in a saucepan with the sugar, liquorice, and water. Let all simmer gently for three-quarters of an hour. Then strain off the liquid, and add the lemon-juice, and serve either hot or cold.
