Put them over a moderate Fire…

Stewing in the Pipkin

The cleaned, peeled, and gilled mushrooms are put into a Saucepan (I chose a redware pipkin with cover)  with some  Pepper and Salt, a Piece of Bacon stuck with four Cloves, some chopped Parsley, a whole Onion, and a quarter of a Pound of Butter.  They stew thus over a moderate Fire, dusted with a little flour and shaken about from time to time.  In some Time the Liquor will be as thick as Cream.
