Steamed american indian pudding

Yield: 6 Servings

Measure Ingredient
¼ pounds Beef suet
Small piece stick cinnamon
Grated rind of one lemon
1 pint Indian meal
1 pint Milk
3 Eggs
¼ pint Molasses

Chop suet very fine and mix with Indian meal. Put cinnamon in the milk; scald in a farina boiler. Strain while mixture is hot and gradually stir in Indian meal and suet. Add molasses, cover mixture, and let stand overnight. In the morning, beat the eggs until light; stir them into the pudding; then turn into a greased mold or well - floured pudding bag, leaving plenty of room for it to swell. If mixture is in a mold, cover it; if in a bag, secure it well at the tying place lest the water get in. Put covered mixture into a pot of boiling water and boil continuously for five hours. Replenish the water as it evaporates with boiling water. When ready to serve, remove the pudding carefully from the mold or bag, and serve immediately with wine sauce.
