The Source Recipe
The original text of the recipe is as follows:

173. Sauce which is called cinnamon of must. You must take raisins and black grapes and all the crumb of a little loaf; and take grapes according to the quantity of the sauce which you wish to make, and put them in a pot to cook with sweet red wine which should be good and fine and very strong and very red, and temper it as you see fit; and boil it vigorously until the raisins and the grapes are all consumed and turned into broth; and then strain all this through a woolen cloth; and after it is strained, set it to cook a little in a small pot so that it turns thick and has the color of gold; and then take sugar and cinnamon; and it must taste a little of nutmeg, and of cloves, and of ginger, and this is served with roasted or fried fowl.
