How to make Kiddley broth:
This would have been a traditional and very economical supper dish. It was also a very good way of using up any stale bread (although the bread does not have to be stale for this recipe) and thus nothing went to waste. Probably quite a comforting dish.
Scifers are something like a small shallot. The tops only are used.


marigold petals
scifers (substitute chives if unavailable)
pepper and salt
(see measure conversions for more information)


- Cut some bread into squares.
- Put them into a basin with a few marigold petals, some scifers chopped small, a lump of butter and pepper and salt to taste.
- Pour boiling water over and eat as hot as possible.
