Baked char, boned and flaked. Pressed into pots and covered with clarified butter. Served at breakfast with toast. Receipt in White 1932.

James Williams 'Briefless Ballads and Legal Lyrics' of 1897 has:
Without distraction thus we read
From nine until eleven,
Then rowed and sailed until we fed
On potted char at seven.
