Onions are hot in the fourth degree and moist in the third and cause unchastity and headaches. To those who eat them raw they cause bad moisture and great thirst.

Czwiffel sind heyß in dem vierdenn grad vnd feucht in dem dritten grad vnd machenn vnkeusch vnd thund we in dem haubt. Vnd so man sie roch isset, so machenn sie böse feuchtigkeit vnd bringenn grossen durst dem menschenn.
