102. BRUSCATE FOR TWELVE DISHES WHICH IS MADE FROM KID'S LIVER AND SPLEEN. You must take two pounds of toasted almonds, and grind them well in a mortar; and take three sheep spleens, and a kid's liver, and a handful of these herbs which are: moraduj, which in Castile is called marjoram, and savory, and mint, and parsley, tying it all with a thread, and set it all to cook in a casserole; and when it is cooked with that broth, you will prepare the almond milk together with the liver and the herbs; and grind it all with twelve eggs, all together with a little white vinegar; and when everything is ground, blend it with the broth, and strain it through a woolen cloth; and when it has been strained, mix it with the almond milk, and then let it go to the fire to cook; and while boiling it, and stirring it, put into the pot an ounce or a half of fine spice; and stir it constantly with a stick until it is thick; and if it does not become thick, cast in a little starch; and make it in such a manner that the sauce has good color; and then prepare dishes.
