Potted Lobster

Cooking Adventures: Potted lobster

2 lobsters
seasoning to taste, of nutmeg, pounded mace, white pepper, and salt;
1/4 lb. of butter
3 or 4 bay-leaves

Cooking Adventures Guides:
Take out the meat carefully from the shell, but do not cut it up. Put some butter at the bottom of a dish, lay in the lobster as evenly as possible, with the bay-leaves and seasoning between. Cover with butter, and bake for 3/4 hour in a gentle oven. When done, drain the whole on a sieve, and lay the pieces in potting-jars, with the seasoning about them. When cold, pour over it clarified butter, and, if very highly seasoned, it will keep some time.

Time. 3/4 hour.
