lb. Haricot Beans ....
pint of Milk ....
quarts Bone Stock
Total Cost - 5 1/2d. Time - Four Hours.
Soak the haricot beans for an hour or two, then put them into a saucepan with the stock or water, the onions, and 1 doz. white peppercorns; boil for four hours and then rub through a sieve, return to the saucepan with the milk and seasoning of pepper and salt, stir until it boils. It is then ready to serve. An ounce of butter stirred in just before it is finished is a great improvement.
This is one of the most nourishing soups that can be made. It is an excellent food for outdoor workers. When butter is dear, sweat the haricots in 1 oz. of beef dripping.
