Adelaide Keen. With a Saucepan over the Sea, 1902
This is old English, a drink offered to callers upon a new baby. To 1 pint of thin oatmeal gruel, add yolk of 1 egg, 1 glass of sherry or port, the grated rind of a lemon, 4 lumps of sugar, and a little nutmeg. Heat it on the fire, stir, and serve hot.
