Lucka 3

"All well-regulated families set apart an hour every morning for tea and bread and butter."
Joseph Addison, 1711

To make Cambridge Almond Butter.
Take a Quart of Cream and sixteen Eggs well beaten, mix them together and strain them into a Posnet, set them on a soft fire, and stir them continually; when it is ready to boil, put in half a quarter of a Pint of Sack, and stir it till it run to a Curd, then strain the Whey from it as much as may be, then beat four Ounces of blanched Almonds with Rosewater, then put the Curd and beaten Almonds and half a pound of fine Sugar into a Mortar, and beat them well together, then put it into Glasses and eat it with bread, it will keep a Fortnight.
From "The Queen-like Closet or Rich Cabinet" (1672) by Hannah Wolley
