To boile mutton for a sick body. Put your mutton into a Pipkin, seeth it and scum it clean, and put therto a crust of Bread. Fennell roots, Percely roots, Corance, great Raisins, the stones taken out, and hearbes according as the patient is. If they be colde, hot hearbs may be borne: If they be hot colde herbs be best, as Endive, Sinamon, violet leaves, and some Sorell: let them boyle togither. Then put in Prunes, and a very little salt this is broth for a sick body.
