For A Kind Of Pottage

This is an excerpt from Een notabel boecxken van cokeryen
(Netherlands, ca. 1510 - C. van Tets, trans.)
The original source can be found at Willy Van Cammeren's website

For a kind of pottage [soup]. Take veal and young hens; cut them in pieces. Then put them to stew in a pot with pork fat and meat broth. Then take bread and set it to soften; after that put it through a strainer. Put in this ginger and no other spice. But put a good amount in. When this pottage is ready, take verjuice and gooseberries, which you put on it and it is done.
