Broiled Mutton

  • Leg of mutton
  • Salt
  • 1/2 onion
  • 1 heaping tsp black pepper
Wash the leg of mutton and wipe dry. Place in a cloth that has been dipped in boiling water. Roll it up, pin and tie securely. Put in a pot of boiling water. Let it simmer for several hours, removing the scum that rises when it first begins to boil. If it is a small leg of mutton, it will require a shorter time to cook than a large one.

Just before it is done, add enough salt to season it properly, onion and black pepper. When this has properly seasoned the meat, remove from the fire, unwrap and drain.

Serve with drawn butter, adding capers. You can also use chopped sour pickle. Mutton should always be served with caper sauce, if possible.
