Mix well together eight ounces of dried and sifted
bread crumbs, (cost three cents,) two ounces of very finely chopped
suet, (cost two cents,) two ounces of currants, two eggs, and two ounces
of sugar, (cost together five cents,) a teaspoonful of salt, three
grates of nutmeg, and sufficient milk to moisten, about one cents'
worth; make the puddings up in little round balls, roll them first in
sifted bread crumbs; next dip them in beaten egg, and then roll them
again in bread crumbs; fry them in plenty of hot fat, and serve them
with sugar dusted over them. Five cents will cover the cost of frying
them; and a nice dishful will cost you about eighteen cents.
