Required : Half a pound of fresh tomatoes. Butter. Vinegar. Salt.

White pepper. Cayenne. Two eggs. Flour. Proteid food.

Take the tomatoes, slice them, and fry them until soft in a heaped tablespoonful of butter. Then rub them through a sieve, and add one tablespoonful of vinegar, sauce, or lemon-juice, salt, white pepper, a pinch of cayenne, the yolks of two eggs, and the white of one well beaten. Then stir in as much flour and half an ounce of proteid food as will make a stiff batter, drop one dessertspoonful at a time into hot butter, and fry it to a pretty golden brown. Drain the fritters, and serve them hot on a napkin.
