Fairy Butter

Sauces - Table
Historic

Hard boiled yolks beaten with orange-water, sugar and butter, "force it through a fine strainer full of little holes onto a plate" (Glasse 1747, Walsh 1859, Mrs.B)


Original Receipt in 'The Experienced English Housekeeper' by Elizabeth Raffald (Raffald 1769)

To make Fairy Butter.

TAKE the yolks of four eggs boiled hard, a quarter of a pound of butter, beat two ounces of sugar in a large spoonful of orange flower water, beat them all together to a fine paste, let it stand two or three hours, then rub it through a cullendar upon a plate; it looks very pretty.
