If You Want To Make Sarraginee

This is an excerpt from Enseignements qui enseingnent a apareillier toutes manieres de viandes

The original source can be found at

If you want to make sarraginee, take eels, then scorch them; And then cut them into pieces, and salt them and fry together; Then take bread and sugar, and grind all together, and temper with wine and verjuice, and put all to boil with the eels; then take cinnamon and lavender and cloves, and grind them all together and temper with a little vinegar; Then put it with the eels and cover well and put over the fire.
