To Boil Green Peas

When your peas are shelled and the water boils,
which should not be much more than will cover them,
put them in with a few leaves of mint,
as soon as they boil put in a piece of butter as big as a walnut,
and stir them about,
when they are done enough, strain them off,
and sprinkle in a little salt,
shake them till the water drains off,
send them hot to the table with melted butter in a cup or boat.
