72. Again, pears cooked without coals or water: and to give understanding to him who will cook them let him arrange that he has a fair new earthen pot and then take the pears which he wants to cook and put them into the said pot and, being put in, stop them with clean wooden sticks in such manner that when the pot is turned upside down on the hot hearth they do not touch it at all; then turn the said pot upside down on the hot cinders and keep it covered with fair coals and leave to cook for an hour or more; then uncover them and look at them and check if they are cooked enough, and leave them until they are cooked enough; and when they are cooked draw them out onto fair silver dishes and then let them be carried to the sick person.
