In Autumn

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

In autumn, which is from the Day of Our Lady's Birth (8 September) to St. Catherine's Day (25 November), you shall eat a little fruit. The fruit you eat should cause a little less heat than almond and green nuts eaten in measure.

In dem herbst, das ist von vnserr frawen tag gepurt piß zu Sandt Katherina tag, so soltu ein wenig obs essenn, vnd waß du von obß issest, das soll etwas messiger hicz bringenn als mandel vnd grüen nuß messig geessenn.
