1 tablespoon butter 1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon corn-starch 1/4 teaspoon mustard 1/2 cup thin cream Few grains cayenne 1/2 lb. soft mild cheese cut in small pieces Toast or wafer crackers
Melt butter, add corn-starch, and stir until well mixed, then add cream gradually, while stirring constantly, and cook two minutes. Add cheese, and stir until cheese is melted. Season, and serve on wafer crackers or bread toasted on one side, rarebit being poured over untoasted side. Much of the success of a rarebit depends upon the quality of the cheese. A rarebit should be smooth and of a creamy consistency, never stringy.
