Random Medieval Recipe of the Day:

A Dish which Reduces Appetite and Strengthens the Stomach. Take sexually mature chickens, clean them and put in a pot. Put on them as much oil as is needed, the weight of a dirham of salt, and onion juice and cilantro juice, two ûqiyas, and ten almonds, peeled and ground, and a clove or garlic and enough water to cover the chickens. And when it is boiling well, throw on some sharp vinegar, murri and nabîdh raihâni ("basil near-wine"), and clove basil and leaves of citron and green rue -- tie up a bundle of all that and put in the pot. When it is done, take Chinese cinnamon, pepper and ginger and serve, God Willing. [An Anonymous Andalusian Cookbook (Andalusia, 13th c. - Charles Perry, trans.)] (permanent link)
