Breakfast, Luncheon and Tea
By Marion Harland [Mary Virginia Terhune] (1875)



    • 1 cup of boiling water.

    • 1 cup rather weak vinegar.

    • 1 small onion, chopped fine.

    • A pinch of cayenne pepper.

    • 1/2 saltspoonful mace.

    • 1 saltspoonful salt.

    • About 2 pounds of eels.

    • 3 table-spoonfuls melted butter.

    • Chopped parsley to taste.


Make a liquor in which to boil the eels, of the vinegar, water, onion, pepper, salt and mace.

Boil--closely covered--fifteen minutes, when strain and put in the eels, which should be cleaned carefully and cut into pieces less than a finger long.

Boil gently nearly an hour.

Take them up, drain dry, and put into a sauce made of melted butter and chopped parsley.

Set the vessel containing them in another of hot water, and bring eels and sauce to the boiling point, then serve in a deep dish.
