Required: Four ounces of lettuce. Eight ounces of green peas. Two spring onions. Half a gill of water. A pinch of salt, sugar, and nutmeg. A small piece of butter.

Well wash the lettuce, and cut it open. Place the above ingredients in the middle of the lettuce, then put all into a well-greased paper bag; put this into the inside of a double-pan hot-air cooker, and cook for one hour. The juices of these vegetables are delicious, and must be poured over the vegetables; or else made into a thick, nourishing sauce, and served up with the vegetables.
