Pears which are raw chill and dry and constipate the body and take away the thirst. Rhazes says that for him who eats them before other food, they press down that food so it can not smell up into the head. If they are rough and not sweet, however, you shall fry them and otherwise not eat them.

Pyren, die do roch sein, die keltenn vnd derren vnd stopffen den leib vnd benemenn den durst. Rasis spricht, der sie vor ander speyß ißt, so trückenn sie die speiß nyder, das sie nit außrichenn in das haubt. Sie sind aber rauch vnd nit süß, so soltu sie bratten, aber zumol nit essenn.
