FROGS. TERRAPIN OR TURTLE.

Frogs

Skin them as soon as possible. The hind legs are usually the only part used, although the back is good eating. Fry or broil the same as chickens - or fricassee them.

Terrapin Or Turtle

Plunge the turtle while yet alive into boiling water. When life is extinct, remove the outer skin and the toe-nails. Then rinse well, and boil in salted water until perfectly tender. Then take off the shells, remove the gall and sand-bag carefully, and clean the terrapin thoroughly. Next cut the meat and entrails into small pieces, saving all the juice, put into a saucepan without water and season to your taste with salt, cayenne, and black pepper. Add for each terrapin, butter the size of an egg made smooth with a tablespoon of flour. A few tablespoons of cream should be added last. Many persons add the yolks of 3 or 4 hard-boiled eggs just before serving. While cooking it should be stirred very often - and must be dished up and eaten very hot.
