Curried Potatoes etc

From The Woman's Own Book of the Home, 1932

3 or 4 boiled potatoes
1 tsp curry powder
lemon juice
1 onion
little stock
dripping (or oil)

Fry the onion and slices of potato in a little dripping, shake over the curry powder, add the stock, a little lemon juice and salt and stew gently for 15 minutes.

Barley Posset
Take 1/4lb barley and boil it with 1 1/2 pints milk. Add 1/2 pint cream, and a little mixed spice, and sugar to taste. When nearly cold add a glassful of sherry and beat up the mixture. (The recipe doesn't say how long you should boil it for - try boiling for one minute then simmering for an hour.)
