GREEN PEAS STEWED. Put into a stew pan a quart of peas, a lettuce and an onion both sliced, and no more water than hangs about the lettuce from washing. Add a piece of butter, a little pepper and salt, and stew them
very gently for two hours. When to be served, beat up an egg, and stir it into them, or a bit of flour and butter.
Chop a little mint, and stew in them. Gravy may be added, or a tea-spoonful of white powdered sugar; but the flavor of the peas themselves is much better.
