Broiled Soft Shell Crabs *Sweetbreads with Mushroom Puree Boiled Bermuda Onions New Green Peas Lettuce and Radish Salad Fried Cornstarch Pudding Coffee

Sweetbreads with Mushroom Puree_—­Blanch and prepare sweetbreads, by cutting away all the windpipes and fibrous nerves.  When they are quite cool, put under a weight to flatten well.  Dip them in melted Crisco and broil, without browning too much, over a clear fire.

Put sweetbreads on very thin slices of round toast and serve with this puree poured over all:  Chop 1 dozen fresh mushrooms and put them to cook with 1/2 pint of cream and 1/2 cup fine breadcrumbs.  Cook them in double boiler till mushrooms can be pressed through rather fine sieve.  Return this puree to fire, season with salt and white pepper, and let get as hot as possible before using it for sweetbreads.
