mulberries Do Great Harm To The Stomach

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

Mulberries do great harm to the stomach, most of all those that are not ripe. They should be eaten before using other food, so that they cause bowel movement and chill the body.

Maulperr die schadenn serr dem magenn vnd allermeyst die, dy nit wol zeittig sein. Mann soll sie essenn, ee das man anndre speyß nüczt, so machenn sie zu stul genn vnd keltenn auch.
