Soups and Broths


One pint of split peas; soak over night in a quart of water; in the morning put with one half pound of salt pork; boil slowly all fore-noon, adding water when necessary; strain through a sieve; season with salt, a little sugar and nutmeg; take stale bread and toast quite brown; spread with butter and cut in small pieces and serve with soup.
