Where something is found [maurt] then a piece of the great intestine should be [fleckes] and put on it. Sprinkle Luneburg salt thinly thereover with crushed cloves, ginger powder, cinnamon, pepper and crushed dried thyme. Then roll together and fold in on all sides so that the outermost side is folded up together, and then sew it together with strong thread. Next the liquid like a [kallun] is seethed, thereafter placed on a board. Over it a board with a weight overnight so that the juice can be pressed out. Then a container is cleaned and on the bottom first placed dry thyme, next a layer of the same rolled [kallun] then a layer of thyme, then [kallun] etc. Thereon is poured an alegar made with a brine so that for six pots of vinegar one pot of boiled brine.
