LXXX - Young hens with bitter oranges. First boil the hen in water. When it is cooked then pour off the water and add good wine to it again. Take bitter oranges and peel them, put them in the wine with the hen. Put to the fire and let boil. Then flavour it with herbs, cinnamon, ginger, nutmegs, nutmeg flowers, saffron and sugar. Give it a sweet taste and salt it to taste.
