_*Lobster Bisque_—­4 tablespoons flour, 3 tablespoons Crisco, 1 tablespoon salt, 1 head celery, 2 lobsters, 1 small onion, 6 whole white peppers, 4 sprigs parsley, 1 quart milk, white pepper to taste.

Cover lobsters with boiling water, add salt, celery diced, whole peppers, parsley and onion.  Cook until lobsters’ claws can easily be pulled apart; it will probably take 25 minutes.  When cool enough to handle, cut lobsters down back, remove meat from body and claws.  Save coral.  Put back all tough parts with small claws and shells, and cook for 20 minutes in same liquor.  Liquor must be considerably reduced.  Dry coral, rub through sieve.  Blend Crisco and flour in saucepan over fire, stir in milk, let this come to boil, add 2 cups of strained lobster broth.  Bring to boiling point, season with salt and pepper, and stir in sifted coral enough to give liquid bright pink color.  Place lobster meat cut in fine pieces in hot tureen, pour hot mixture over and serve hot.
