Flour Ball for Teething Children

November 6th, 2015

One cupful of flour tied in a stout muslin bag, and dropped into cold water, then set over the fire ; boil three hours steadily ; turn out the flour ball, and dry in the hot sun all day, or, if you need it at once, dry in a moderate oven without shutting the door.

To cook it, grate one tablespoonful of the flour for a cupful of boiling milk and water; wet the flour with a little cold water, stir in, and boil five minutes; add a pinch of salt.
