How to make it

  • Take large Frogsand cut off the hinder Legs
  • Remove the Feet
  • Boil them in a little Veal-Broth ,with whole Pepper and a little Salt
  • Add some sweet Herb,and some Lemon-Peel till the flesh is a little tender
  • Then strain off the Liquor and thicken it with Butter and Cream
  • Then serve them hot with the Cream ,and some Mushrooms pickled.
  • Toss'd up with the sauce ,they make a very good Dish
  • Their bones are of a very fine Texture ,are better to be eaten than Song Birds
  • But we have in many Places an Aversion to them
  • And to the Mushroom
  • Not in France at the abode of Monsieur Ganeau
  • NOTE : English people still have an aversion to frogs' legs and they are still a delicacy in France and many parts of South East Asia .I've eaten them in Indonesia ,fresh from the rice paddies !

    Yes ,they are very similar to chicken --when we were in Indonesia ,small boys would find them in the rice paddies using lamps on long poles ,bring them to the outdoor restaurant where we all sat ,and they would be cooked in front of you --all very much part of the romance and mystery and excitement of the Indonesian islands , as we sat with a view of a smoking volcano ! We also ate fruit bat there as well .
