The Portrait of a Lady volume 1, chapter 3
Mrs. Touchett is separated from her husband. She has a long list of reasons why she doesn’t live in England. Here’s one of the reasons.
She detested bread-sauce, which as she said, looked like a poultice and tasted like soap…
Bread-sauce? What’s bread-sauce?
I’m familiar with applesauce. I’ve even canned pearsauce but bread-sauce?
I googled it and found a recipe.
What I want to know is if any of you have consumed or prepared this classic British dish.
