This is an excerpt from Een notabel boecxken van cokeryen

To make kimmeneyde, raw or separate, that is, the sauce alone. Take egg yolks which are hard-boiled and crumbs of white bread ground together; pass this through a strainer with wine. Then take grains of paradise, ginger [and] cinnamon ground together and meal sugar with saffron mixed through it and add thereto a little cumin. Then this sauce is ready. Then take boiled sulte [salted pork neck] and boiled young rabbits together. Some take roast doves or roast partridges and divide them in two or in four and lay them thus in a dish. And then one shall pour the sauce over it, and so serve it to the table.
