This is an excerpt from Een notabel boecxken van cokeryen

For an amandeleye within the fasting time. Take almonds, cinnamon, ginger, a little pepper and a little bread therewith and pass it through a strainer. But it must be well ground up with hot water. One simmers this all together over the fire until it is thick enough and let pot sugar boil with it. When it is off the fire add it and loaf sugar then stir and let cool. In this one lays and serves fried/roast fish. Over this one strews cinnamon powder or white sugar.
