LXIV - A mash of peas. Soak the peas well in chalk so that the skins can be taken off. Seethe them then well soft in a pot and rub them small. Make them well up in clean water but not that they get too thin but evenly thick. Salt them moderately. Now take olive oil in a different pot and put that over glowing coals. Take slices of simle, and dip into the peas and then put it so the peas hang on to both sides. Put this in the hot oil so that the bottom of the pot or pan the oil is in is covered by the same simle and make sure that there is not a oto hot fire underneath so it burns. If you want you can sprinkle the same simle slices with sugar and small raisins. Afterwards put more simle on the pan and bake so that they are well brown on one side. Then you can turn them in another pan on the other side. Put by the fire that it too becomes browned on the other side. Serve it up and sprinkle it with sugar and cinnamon.
