6 oz. sugar

Salt

8 oz. soft butter

4 oz. Crisco

6 eggs

Directions:

Soak farina in milk or stock in which the chicken has been cooked, until all the granules are saturated. Mix well with the drained cassava, add the sugar and salt, soft butter and Crisco. Mix in thoroughly. Stir in the eggs until the batter is of a light consistency. Add grated nutmeg, vanilla and lemon flavouring to taste.
