Lentils Boiled Plain

(Peas, Beans, Lentils, And Maize.) - (Twenty-five Cent Dinners For Families Of Six)

Wash one pound, or one full pint of lentils,

(cost ten cents,) well in cold water, put them over the fire, in three

quarts of cold water with one ounce of drippings, one tablespoonful of

salt, and a saltspoonful of pepper, (cost about one cent,) and boil

slowly until tender, that is about three hours; drain off the little

water which remains, add to the lentils one ounce of butter, a

tablespoonful of chopped parsley, a teaspoonful of sugar, and a little

more salt and pepper if required, (cost about three cents,) and serve

them hot. Always save the water in which they are boiled; with the

addition of a little thickening and seasoning, it makes a very

nourishing soup.
