This entry is a re-creation of a recipe from The Neapolitan recipe collection (Italy, 15th c - T. Scully, trans.), entitled "Thrush with their Sauce". [insert a brief description of dish here, possibly including any or all of the following: characteristics of the final dish, when or how it might have been served, and why you selected it]

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

Thrush with their Sauce. Get thrush, clean them and roast them; for their sauce get almonds and blanch them, grind them up as much as you can and combine with them a good amount of [ground] sandalwood and distemper this with verjuice and a little broth, adding in sugar and cinnamon, then strain everything; bring this sauce to a boil and pour it over the thrush. If you do not like this sauce, when the thrush are done get lemon juice and strong sweet orange juice, or pomegranate juice, with mild spices; mix these together and pour the mixture on the thrush while they are very hot.
