Sawce for swannus. Take þo offal and þo lyver of þo swan, In gode brothe þou sethe hom þan. When hit is sothyne, take oute þe bonus, Smalle hew þo flesshe, Syr, for þe nonus. Make alyoure of crust of brede, Of blode of swanne, þat soþun is lede, Caste powdur of gynger and clawes þer to, Of peper and wyn þou take also, And salt hit þen and sethe hit wele. Cast in þy flesshe, hewen yche a dele, And messe hit forthe, as I þe kenne, Set hit in sale before goode menne.
