Excerpt from Gulf City Cook Book Scotch Broth. On four pounds of good beef pour one gallon of cold water. When this boils add one half pint of coarse barley. Then prepare and add one fourth of a small cabbage, four carrots, two parsnips, four turnips, one and a half pints of Irish potatoes; these should all be chopped fine before adding. Three quarters of an hour before serving, add one good-sized onion, cut fine, a sprig of parsley, and pepper and salt to taste. This should cook at least four hours. A pint of green peas is a great improvement, to be added with the onion, parsley, etc. Ox-Tail Soup. Cut up two or three ox-tails, separating them at the joints. Put them in a stew-pan with one and a half ounces of butter, two carrots cut in slices, one stalk of celery, two turnips, a quarter of a pound of lean ham cut in pieces, a tea-spoonful of whole pepper, a sprig of parsley and thyme, and half a pint of cold water. Stir over a quick fire to extract the flavor of the herbs, then pour on three quarts of water. Simmer four hours, or until the tails are tender, skimming well. Strain the soup, reserving the ox-tails. Stir in a little flour for thickening, a wine-glass of Madeira wine, one of catchup, and a half stalk of celery, previously boiled Put the pieces of ox-tail into the strained soup, boil a few minutes, and serve. Chicken Soup. Cut up one chicken and boil in three quarts of water till the strength is extracted. Then add two table-spoonfuls of rice, a sprig of parsley and thyme, and salt and pepper to taste. Before serving, add two hard-boiled eggs, chopped fine, and if the chicken is not fat, a table-spoonful of butter.
