This entry is a re-creation of a recipe from The Prince of Transylvania's Court Cookbook (Hungary, 16th c.), entitled "Yet Another Method". [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:

Yet another method. Peel seven or eight almonds, cook some barley grist in beef boiling water or regular water; if you crush the almonds, put a spoon of boiled barley into it and crush it together. If the barley was cooked in beef boiling water, pass through a strainer it, you need no butter; if you cooked in regular water, warm some butter and put it in there, then some small grapes too, then a thin slice of bread. If the patient can't eat bread, crush it and add the crumbs. Sometimes the patient doesn't like dishes with butter or sugar, but it must be eaten.
