If You Want To Make Gestrocztes Fritters

This is an excerpt from Das Kochbuch des Meisters Eberhard

If you want to make gestrocztes fritters. Make a batter of plenty of eggs and season it well, and color it yellow. Throw a dozen good helmm (mushroom caps?) into the batter, so that they are wet (covered in it), and then take them out and bake them in lard, and do not oversalt it.

Wiltu machen ein gestrocztes gepachens. So mach ein teyck von eytell eyernn vnd wurcz in wol vnd mach in gel vnd warmm duczent gutter helmm in den teick, das sie naß werdenn, vnd nym sie dann her auß vnd pack es in einem schmalcz vnd versalcz nit.
