Catholic Recipe: Lamb's Wool II
Also Called: Lambswool; lambsool
This Lambs' Wool is an alcoholic drink made from ale which dates from times before the invention of distilled liquors. The recipes vary. If ale is used it is served warm. If cider is used it is usually served cool. The "wool" is the apple slices and beaten eggs.
Heat ale to the bubbling point. Add the sugar and spices. Continue to cook until the ale boils. Remove from the fire, and add beaten eggs. Pour over roasted apple slices into your punch bowl.Recipe Source: Cooking for Christ by Florence Berger, National Catholic Rural Life Conference, 4625 Beaver Avenue, Des Moines, IA 50310, 1949, 1999
