Mine eyes smell onions, I shall weep anon.



1 pint cooked lima beans

1 cup stewed or canned corn

To prepare the beans, take four-fifths of a cup of dried lima beans, soak an hour or more in cold water; drain, and add one quart hot water. Cook until almost tender. Add the salt, and finish cooking. Allow the liquid to evaporate before removing from the stove. Add the corn, butter and salt. Reheat, and serve.

Creamed Japanese Crosnes

1 quart crosnes 1 pint milk

3 tablespoons butter 3 tablespoons flour

Cleanse the crosnes thoroughly by scrubbing with a vegetable brush, plunge them into boiling, salted water, and boil ten or fifteen minutes, or until tender. Drain, and prepare a white sauce of the milk, butter, flour and salt. Turn the sauce over the crosnes, and cook two or three minutes.


Wash thoroughly, cut off the roots, drain, put in a stew-pan and boil one hour until tender in boiling salted water. Drain again, chop fine, season with butter, salt and pepper, and serve with vinegar or lemon juice.

Pour off the water, and season with butter, salt and pepper.
