Beef marrow in pottage. Take beef marrow seven or eight large pieces, when well washed put on a plate with good broth, & put them to boil, then take five or six beaten eggs,& put therein parsley & finely chopped marjoram, well ground nutmeg, and mix them with the eggs, and cast them into the beef marrow all boiling, and let again a little on the fire that the eggs will be a little firm, then have toasted white bread, and put full a silver strainer if large pieces you can, & put on the toasts with broth thereon, & serve it forth all hot.
