32 - To make sucket of Lettuce stalks. Take Lettuce stalks, and pill away the outerside: then parboile them in faire water: then let them stand all night dry: then take halfe a pint of the same liquor, and a quarter of a pint of Rose-water, and so boyle it to sirup: and when your sirup is betwixt hot and cold, put in your aforesaid roots, and let them stand all night in your sirup to make them take sugar, and then the next day your sirup will bee wake again: then boile it again, and take out your roots. In the like sort may you keepe Orenge pils, or greene Walnuts, or any thing that hath the bitterness first taken from it, by boiling in water.
