BOILED EELS
(Modern Cookery, 1845)
German Receipt.


Pare a fine lemon, and strip from it entirely the white inner rind; slice it, and remove the pips with care;

put it with a blade of mace, a small half-teaspoonful of white peppercorns, nearly twice as much of salt, and a moderate-sized bunch of parsley, into three pints of cold water.

Bring them gently to boil, and simmer them for twenty minutes; let them become quite cold;

then put in three pounds of eels skinned, and cleaned with great nicety, and cut into lengths of three or four inches; simmer them very softly from ten to fifteen minutes,

lift them with a slice into a very hot dish, and serve them with a good Dutch sauce, or with parsley and butter acidulated with lemon-juice, or with chili vinegar.
