Oleum iusquiani is made thus. Iusquianum means mushrooms. Fill a pot that has holes with the seed and the heads and leaves cut up, take another pot and bury it in the ground and put the other one with holes on top and cover it well, so that nothing can fall in, and then cover both with earth and leave them standing for a year. When the year is over, take them out and you will find fine and clear oil in the bottom pot. This oil is good against all diseases caused by heat, because it chills strongly.

Oleum iusquiani macht man also. Iusquianum heyßt pilsenn. Fülle einen hafen mit dem samenn, der locher hab, der new ist, vnd die köplichen vnd pleterr zu schnittenn, nym einen andernn hafen vnd grab den vurr die erdenn vnd secz den ersten locheretten auff den die erdenn vnd stopff es wol zu, das nichcz dar ein felt, vnd deck dann die erden v::ber die czwenn hefen vnd laß die ein iarr stenn. Wenn das jarr vmb kumbt, so nyms her auß, so vindestu schon vnd lauterr öl in dem vndersten hafen. Das öl ist garr gut zu allerley seuchenn, die von hicz komenn, wann es kelt serr.
