Crunchy Frogs Recipe

The only legitimate way to cook a frog is to fry him brown in sweet table butter. As a preliminary he must be dipped in a batter of cracker dust, which should adhere closely when cooked forming a dainty cracknel of a golden brown colour, with a crisp tang to it when submitted to the teeth. The tender juices thus retained lose none of their delicate flavour.

Next to the pleasure of sitting on the borders of a frog-pond at eventide and listening to their sweet, melancholy ch-r-r-rk is that of reviewing a plate heaped high with the mementoes of a finished feast—the bones of the 'Frog that would a-wooing go' and a goodly portion of his kindred.
