AUNT CAROLINE’S PORRIDGE
Pick over and wash two-thirds of a cupful of white beans. Put on the back of the stove in cold water. Let these boil slowly, while the dinner is cooking. When the boiled dinner has been taken up, put these beans into the liquor in which the dinner was cooked. Boil one hour. Wet three tablespoonsful of flour with water, and stir in while boiling, to thicken. Serve hot, adding a little milk, if you like.
