...but are you sure this is a Victorian recipe? The direction to whizz it in a liquidiser sounds awfully modern to me smiley - winkeye

What would they have done at the time? You said that you could just pour it through a seive to remove the lumps, but back then they may have passed it through something seive-like using the back of a spoon to mash the lumps through the mesh, effectively doing the same job as the liquidiser.

Nice entry, mmmmm...smiley - drool

Hehe, if someone was looking for true Victorian authenticity, they wouldn't search for recipes on the internet, would they smiley - winkeye. Apart from the bit about the liquidiser, I'm pretty sure it's genuine Victorian stuff smiley - smiley

Your solution sounds good enough to me though!
