145. Pastry in A JAR. Take a leg of mutton, and chop it very well without fat; and take a piece of fatty bacon, and chop it all together; and after chopping it well, cast it into a pot; and cast in the pot-grease and cook it well; and as it cooks, continue casting in the pot-grease; and then cast in saffron, and pepper, and cloves, and cook it a little with the spices; then cast in bread and grated cheese until it thickens; and after it has thickened, set it aside.
