Baked Breast Of Mutton

Sew up breast of mutton in a thin cloth, put into a stewpan, nearly

cover with cold salt water, and let simmer, allowing ten minutes to each

pound. Take out of pan and cloth, put into baking dish, rub over with

mutton drippings, butter or fat, sprinkle with flour and bake one-half

hour in hot oven, basting frequently with its own broth. Just before

removing from oven, strew with bread crumbs and butter and let brown.

Serve with brown sauce made from broth in which meat was cooked.
