Potted pigeons^

Yield: 1 servings

Measure Ingredient
4 \N Pigeons
1½ pint Water or stock
1 \N Stalk celery, chopped

Clean and truss the birds as for roasting. Chop up the pork, fry out the fat and brown the bids. Put pigeons in a casserole, add celery, seasoning and stock. Cover closely and cook about 2 hours. Put birds on serving dish, thicken gravy with flour and butter rubbed together.

Remove celery, and pour gravy over birds. Many of the recipes in this collection did not contain amounts or oven temperatures. I have typed them in as they appear in the book, typos and all.
