Cream, milk, or a whip of cream, sugar, wine, and lemon, should be put into the dish or into a glass bowl, to serve with the curd.

Cuno Pudding (Boiled).—Rub the curd of two gallons of milk, well drained, through a sieve; then mix with six eggs, a little cream, two spoonsful of orange-flower water, half a nutmeg grated, three spoonsful of flour, and three spoonsful of bread crumbs, half a pound of currants, and half a pound of raisins stoned.
