Thus shall one purify and skim the honey. Take half a pint of fine white honey and put it in a pannikin on the fire and let it come to the boil three or four times. Then set it off the fire and take a spoon; with it skim all the scum off the top. And put this clear, purified honey in a pot. One shall use [honey] like this in the aforesaid ypocras and in the clareyt.
