LXXIIX - A good broth from fried young hens. First fry the hen whole. Take almond in a pan and fry them that they're well brown. Put this through a mortar, give thereto wheat bread and pound together finely, and add to this good wine. Let this run through a clean linen cloth. Put this broth in a clean pot, let it boil up and give it a lively taste, sweet or sour whichever you want. Put herbs in it, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, nutmeg flowers and salt it to taste. Then take the hen, put it on a plate and pour this broth over it. If you want then put coriander in it and sprinkle with cinnamon.
