For lamprays bakun. Fyrst scalde þy lamprays fayre and wele, As I tolde byfore, so have þou cele. Soþun, rere a cofyne of flowre so fre, Rolle in þo lampray, as hit may be. Take mynsud onyons þer to, gode wonne, But fyrst take powder of peper, anon Of maces, cloves and graynys also, And dates al hole þou take þerto, Poure rede wyne þerto þou schalle, Coloure hit with safrone and closen alle. In myddes þo lydde an tuel þou make, Set hit in þo ovyn for to bake. 3ete take hit oute, fede hit with wyne, Lay on þo tuel a past fulle fyne, And bake hit forthe, as I þe kenne, To serve in sale before gode menne.
