Turtle Soup

  • 2 1/2 quarts turtle soup
  • 1 ounce mace
  • 2 tsps allspice
  • 1 tsp cloves
  • Black pepper
  • Cayenne pepper
  • Salt
  • Parsley
  • Thyme
  • Onion
  • 2 Tbsps flour
  • 1 Tbsp brown sugar
  • 4 Tbsps water
  • 1/2 pint Madeira wine
To the soup, add mace, allspice and cloves. Also add black pepper, cayenne and salt to taste. Tie up a bunch of parsley, thyme and onion in a cloth. Throw this into the soup when boiling. When nearly done, thicken with flour.

To give it a good color, take the brown sugar and burn it. When burnt, add water. Of this coloring, put 2 Tbsps in the soup.

Just before serving, add the Madeira wine.
