Hen Roasted in a Pot in the Oven. Take a young, plump, cleaned hen, and put it on a wooden spit like a lance; place in a new pot of its size, not touching the sides or the bottom, and seal on it with dough a lid pierced in the middle, so that the end of the lance sticks out through the hole, so that it stays upright. The lid is made to touch with the dough. Put the pot in a moderate oven and leave it until it is ready; then take it out and prepare for it salt ground with pepper and cinnamon, and sprinkle salt over it upon opening the pot. Then cover it a little after beating it until the salt penetrates it.
