X - To cook herring. I - Salted herring is watered overnight, then seethe it [reglet or wreglet]. II - When it is soft, hang it to dry, fill it with onion. Prick it with a knife's edge and then fry it on a griddle. III - Put barley or oats to soak one night in milk. Mix it with pepper and coriander or small raisins and mix it like a porridge. Cut the herring along the back and fill it with this porridge and tie it with thread. Then seethe it and give it out with butter. It has a peculiar taste.
