Yf þy dysshe metes dere ben to salt, Kerve a grene sod, I wot, þou schalt, And kover þy pot with þo gresse done, Þo salt on þo gresse shalle barke fulle sone. With þy honde smyte of, I say. Þo salt lay on anew þou may. Þys schalt þou gedur hit, yche a dele, And make hit fresshe unto þe mele. If I schalle of þese potage spelle A whyle þeron þen most I dwelle. Fyrste, to speke of furmenté, How hit is made in yche degre.
