93 If you would make a grape tart. Take the grapes, with raisins mixed among them. Take them whole, put sugar thereon and cinnamon and shake it well together and put it on a pastry shell. Let it bake a little while. Then put some Malavosia thereon and let it bake a while longer, then it is ready. When you put the grapes on the tart, then put them beforehand in a pan and put nothing in it, neither wine nor water, and fry them, stirring them all around well therein, then they will swell up nicely. Only after that put them in the tart, as you would have it.
