This entry is a re-creation of a recipe from The Prince of Transylvania's Court Cookbook (Hungary, 16th c.), entitled "Hen Stuffed With Clean Pepper". [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:

Hen stuffed with clean pepper. Remove the feathers and the intestines like I told you. Once the intestines are removed, skin it, cut the legs by the knee, cut the wings, leave its head on the skin. Do the stuffing. If you have fat bacon, slice it like you'd slice a sausage, add some black pepper, if you want you could also add marjoram or black pepper; if you have no pork, you can do so with sheep or calf. This is the stuffing; fill the hen, stitch it. Boil it in hot water, if you want to roast it, make some sauce, but you can also cook it.
