To boyle chickins with hearbs. Take your Chickins and scalde them and trusse the wings on, & put their feete under the wings of your Chickins, and set them on in a little pot and scum them faire, when they have boyled: put in Spinage or Letuice a good deale, and Rosemary, sweet butter, vergious, salt and a little Sugar and strained Bread, with a litle wine, and cut sippets, and serve it out.

So may you boyle Mutton, or Pigeons, or Conny.
