A Ragoo of Sweetbreads*

Take your Sweet-Breads and skin them, and put some Butter in the Frying-pan, and brown it with Flour, and put the Sweet-Breads in, stir them a little; and turn them; then put in some strong Broth and Mushrooms, some Pepper and Salt, Cloves and Mace; let them stew half an Hour, then put in some forced Meat Balls, some Artichoke Bottoms cut small and thin; make it thick and serve it up with sliced Lemon.

From A. Bettesworth and C. Hitch, The Complete Family-Piece, 1737
