He who wants to make a fladen of morella cherries, he takes them and breaks off the stems and boils them (the cherries) in a pot until they become dry, with their own broth. And pour them then out and let them cool there. And pound them through a cloth. And lubricate a board well with honey. And pour the cherries thereon. And set the board of wood in the air, until it becomes dry. (Do) not höt (possibly heat) its air. So set in a cool yard. And make that diced. And cut it and sprinkle it with spices. And it (is) as a latwergen. (A latwergen is something, which through boiling, is a thicker juice.)
