Grenadines


This is an excerpt from Das Kochbuch des Meisters Eberhard
(Germany, 15th century - V. Bach, trans.)

Grenadines, eaten on an empty stomach, slake the thirst and drive away excess gall and cause hunger in people. Rhazes says that they drive out the fever and cause those, who have their food coming (back) out of their mouths, to keep it down, and chill the liver. Averroes says that, when eaten at mealtimes, they do not let food spoil in the stomach. If they are eaten last they do not let the vapors of the other food rise up into the head.

Granat öepffel, nüchternn gessenn, die leschen den durst vnd vertreyben vber gele vnd machent den menschenn hungernn. Rasis spricht, das sie vertreyben den ritenn vnd machenn den die speyß zu dem mund auß fert, das im die speyß beleibt, vnd kelt die lebernn. Auerrois spricht, welche zeit man ißt, das sie dann die speiß nit lassenn verderben in dem magenn. Vnd der sie zu hinderst ißt, so lassen sie die andernn speyß nicht auf richenn in das haubt.
