Black Bean Soup

Soak over night one quart of black turtle beans in water to cover
them. In the morning strain and boil them in four quarts of water
for one hour, skimming frequently. Then put into the liquor two white
onions sliced, two stalks of celery cut into bits, salt, pepper,
cayenne, and one teaspoonful each of cloves and allspice. Boil for
three hours. Remove from the stove and add enough stock to thin the
mixture to the consistency of a cream soup. Pour into it nearly a
tumbler of sherry and add a thinly sliced lime. Place over the fire
to boil for five minutes. Just before serving stir into the soup three
hard-boiled eggs, finely chopped. Force meat balls may be added.

Soak one pint of beans over night, drain, add cold water and rinse
thoroughly. Fry two tablespoons of chopped onion in two tablespoons of
butter, put in with the beans, add two stalks of celery or a piece of
celery root and two quarts of water. Cook slowly until the beans are
soft, three or four hours, add more boiling water as it boils away; rub
through a strainer, add one-eighth teaspoon of pepper, one-fourth
teaspoon of mustard, a few grains of cayenne. Heat one tablespoon of
butter in saucepan with two tablespoons of flour, then two-thirds cup

To one quart of beans add one teaspoon of soda, cover with water, let

into cold water, rub with the hands, then remove the hulls; drain, and
rub until all hulls are removed; take two quarts of water to one quart
of beans, boil until the beans will mash smooth; boil a small piece of
meat with the beans. If you have no meat, rub butter and flour

1 lb. Haricot Beans--4d.

2 Onions

1/2 pint of Milk

2 quarts Bone Stock--1 1/2d.

Total Cost--5 1/2 d.

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 dozen 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.

Bean Soup

(Zuppa di fagiuoli)

One cup of dried beans, kidney, navy or lima is to be soaked over night.

Then boil until tender. It is preferable to put the beans to cook in

cold water with a pinch of soda. When they come to boil, pour off this

water and add fresh.

Chop fine 1/4 onion, one clove of garlic, one sprig of parsley and one

piece of celery and put them to fry in 1/4 cup of oil with salt and a

generous amount of pepper. When the vegetables are a delicate brown add

to them two cups of the broth from the beans and 1 cup of tomatoes

(canned or fresh). Let all come to a boil and pour the mixture into the

kettle of beans from which some of the water has been drained, if they

are very liquid. This soup may be served as it is or rubbed through a

sieve before serving. Croutons or triangles of dry toast make an

excellent addition.

The bean soup is made without meat or chicken broth, and it belongs

consequently to that class of soup called by the Italians "Minestra di

Magro" or "lean soup," to be served preferably on Friday and other days

in which the Roman Catholic Church prohibits the use of meats.
