Mushrooms stewed.

Take them fresh gathered, and cut off the end of the stalk; and as you peel them, put them in a dish with White-wine; after they have layn half an hour, drain them from the Wine, and put them between two Dishes, and set them on a soft fire without any liquor, and when they have stewed a while, pour away the liquor that proceeded from them, then put to your Mushrooms a sprig of Time, a whole Onion, four or five corns of whole Pepper, two or three Cloves, a piece of an Orange, a little Salt, and some sweet-butter, with some pure gravy of Mutton; cover them and set them on a gentle fire, so let them stew softly till they are enough and very tender; when you dish them, blow off the fat | | 140 from them, and take out the Time, the Spice, and Orange, then wring in the juice of Lemon, and strew some Nutmeg thereon.
