The Heart Of Any Animal Is Indigestible And does Not Nourish Well

This is an excerpt from Das Kochbuch des Meisters Eberhard
(Germany, 15th century - V. Bach, trans.)
The original source can be found at Mark S. Harris' Florilegium

The heart of any animal is indigestible and does not nourish well. The brain chills and causes loss of appetite and harms the stomach. It should never be eaten except before other food.

Item das hercz an einem yetlichenn tier ist vndewig vnd speist nit wol. Aber das hirnn kelt vnd macht vnlustig zu essenn vnd schadt dem magenn, vnd soll man es nymmerr anders essenn dann vor ander speyß.
