15 - To make paste of Novie. Tke a quarter of a pound of Valentian almonds, otherwise called the small almonds, or Barbarie almonds, and beat them in a mortar till they come to paste; then take stale manchet being grated, & dry it before the fire in a dish; then sift it; then beat it with your almonds: put, in the beating of it, a little cinamon, ginger, and the juice of a lemmon, and when it is beaten to perfect paste, print it with your moulds, and so dry it in an oven after you have drawne your breade: this paste will last all the yeere.
