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.
