Cooked beans, or peas,

Chopped nut-meats,


Sweet cream,

Salt and pepper,

Cranberry sauce,


Take a quantity of cooked beans or peas, and pass them through a colander to remove the skins. Mix with them an equal quantity of finely chopped nut-meats, and season to taste.

Put half of the mixture into a buttered baking-dish and spread over it a dressing made as follows:

Pour some boiling water upon four slices of zwieback; cover, and let it stand for a few minutes, then break them up with a fork, and pour over them a half cup of sweet cream. Season this with salt and sage.

Pour this dressing over the nuts and vegetables in the buttered dish, and then cover with the remainder of the nut-mixture. Over all pour half a cup of cream, and bake for 11/2 hours.

Serve in slices, with cranberry sauce.
