Stewed Prunes Or Pruens

Purchase the cheaper kind of small prunes sold at 4d. per lb.; put

them into a saucepan with a pint of water, a bit of lemon-peel, and two

ounces of sugar, and allow them to simmer and stew very gently for about

half an hour, and then let them become nearly cold. Boil some rice in a

cloth, as directed in No. 92, and when done and turned out on its dish,

pour the prunes over it for the children's dinner. Once in a way, this

cheap and wholesome meal would prove a great treat.
