4 good-sized carrots
1 head of celery
3 oz. of Allinson wholemeal bread without crust
1 oz. of butter
pepper and salt
1 blade of mace
Wash, scrape, and cut the carrots into dice. Prepare and cut up the onions and celery. Set the vegetables over the fire with 3 pints of water, adding the mace and seasoning. Let all cook until quite soft, which will probably be in 1-1/2 hours.
If the carrots are old, they will take longer cooking. When the vegetables are tender, rub all through a sieve, return the soup to the saucepan, add the butter, allow it to boil up, and serve with snippets of toast.
