To Prepare pike And eel

This is an excerpt from Een notabel boecxken van cokeryen

To prepare pike and [conger] eel. Take eel and pike which have been roasted on the grid, cut up in pieces and laid thus in a pan or in a pot and when it is roasted enough and in the pan or pot so take puree [of peas] in order to boil in it the pikes' livers [which] must be mashed and sieved. Into this put ginger and saffron to give the colour. Then stew this with the eel and pike; put some salt in, as much as necessary.
