Beef Collar'd.

In the right making of a Collar of Beef you must take the flank and lay it in Pump-water two or three days; shift it twice a day, then | | 123 take it out, and dry it very well with clean Clothes, cut it in three layers, and take out the bones and most of the fat; then take three handfuls of Salt, and good stoore of Sweet Herbs chopped very small, mingle them, and stew them betwixt the three layers, and lay them one upon another; then take an ounce of Cloves and Mace, and another of Nutmegs, and beat them well, and strew it between the layers of Beef, rowl it up close together, then lay some splices about it, and with pack- thread tye it up very close and hard, put it in a long Earthen-pot, which are made on purpose for that use, tying up the top of the pot with cap-paper; set it into the Oven, let it stand eight hours, draw it, and taking it out of the pot, hang it up for use.
