Clean it in the morning and put it in a pot with half a spoonful of vinegar and three ûqiyas of good honey, peeled almonds and sufficient water and salt, three spoonfuls of oil, and half a dirham of saffron. Put it on the fire and when it is all done, take it down, having a large clay dish. Then cover it with cold breadcrumbs and two eggs without flour, and throw the two yolks in the pot.
