90 If you would like to make chicken on head lettuce. Then take a pot and lay a handful of lettuce in it and a chicken on top, again a handful of lettuce and a chicken and so forth. Take after that good broth, which should be rich, and put a good piece of butter into it and salt it and boil it, until you think that it has cooked enough. Put a little mace into it. One must, however, use head lettuce and it should be washed clean beforehand, then it is ready.
