VII - To cook squash. Cut it in pieces and peel off the green bark. And take out the soft stuff that is inside with seeds and all and throw it away or keep the seeds if they are ripe to be planted: the other soft stuff is no use. Then cut the pieces into small dice. Before you must have put on the fire a clean glazed pot with milk and when it seethes then throw these dice into it and let it seethe well: When it is nice and soft then grind it small in the pot with a wooden spoon and put it back on the fire. When it has seethed a while then put some grated wheat bread into it and let it cook together. Then add butter, pepper and saffron into it and you have a fine dish.
