1. The yolks of 2 hard-boiled eggs
  2. 1 tablespoonful of orange-flower water
  3. 2 tablespoonfuls of pounded sugar
  4. 1/4 lb. of good fresh butter.
  • Beat the yolks of the eggs smoothly in a mortar, with the orange-flower water and the sugar, until the whole is reduced to a fine paste
  • Add the butter, and force all through an old but clean cloth by wringing the cloth and squeezing the butter very hard
  • The butter will then drop on the plate in large and small pieces, according to the holes in the cloth
  • Plain butter may be done in the same manner, and is very quickly prepared, besides having a very good effect.
