17 - To make a paste to keep you moist, if you list not to drink oft; which Ladies use to carry with them when they ride abroad. Take halfe a pound of Damaske prunes, and a quartern of dates: stone them both, and beat them in a mortar with one warden being rosted, or else a slice of old marmelade: and so print it in your moulds and dry it after you have drawne bread: put Ginger into it, and you may serve it at a banquet.
