Cut a chicken into small pieces and fry it with a clove of garlic in
a large tablespoonful of lard, for ten minutes. Then add one quart of
water, half a cupful each of green peas, string beans and grains of
corn, and boil one and one-half hours. Add three potatoes cut into
bits, one tablespoonful of rice, salt, pepper and the white of one
egg. Boil for three-quarters of an hour longer, then remove from the
fire. In a tureen mix one mashed potato with the yolk of the egg and
a tablespoonful of vinegar. Strain the broth slowly into this and mix
thoroughly before adding the chicken and other ingredients.
