    Hare or Rabbit Soup 
    • HARE OR RABBIT SOUP.

      MRS. ALLENBY.

      Hare or rabbit, salt, onion, one-half pint of port or native wine, flour, pepper, cloves, one head of celery. Thoroughly cleanse in salt and water, cut into very small pieces, put into the oven in a crock with an onion pierced with cloves, and one head of celery cut fine and sufficient water to cover (the water will decrease and a little more must be added), the crock, of course, to be covered. The oven must not be very hot, and the crock may be left in until the meat will slip from the bones, then taken out and the contents strained, return the soup to the crock, adding one-half pint of port or native wine, flour to thicken, pepper and salt to the taste, allowing to remain in the oven until it is ready to boil. This soup takes fully twenty-four hours in preparation.1a

    Ox Tail Soup 
    • OX-TAIL SOUP.

      MRS. ALLENBY.

      Two ox-tails, two slices of ham, one ounce of butter, two large slices of turnip, one leek, three onions, one head of celery, one bunch of herbs, pepper and salt to taste, two tablespoonfuls of catsup, one-half glass of port wine, three quarts water, two grated carrots. Cut up the tails separating them at the joints, wash them and put them in a stew-pan with butter. Cut up the vege-tables and add with the herbs. Put in one-half pint of water and stir it over a quick fire until the juices are drawn out. Fill up the stew-pan with water, when boiling add salt. Simmer gently for four hours or a little longer if the tails are not tender. Take them out, strain the soup, thicken and flavor with the wine and catsup, put back the tails and simmer again for a few minutes and serve. Do not forget to skim the soup.1a
