151. Arugula in Another Good Manner. Take a pound of arugula very well scraped with a knife , and grind it very well and finely, and strain it through a fine sieve; then set it to soak in good red vinegar, that it should be more thin than thick, for six or eight days; then take ten pounds of honey and melt it while you bring it to a boil; and remove it from the fire, and cast in three maravedis of good red wine; and take the soaked arugula, and empty it into the kettle where you must prepare the arugula; and empty out the melted honey on top of it, straining it through a sieve; again stirring the arugula very well with a stick, and set it to cook until it thickens as it should; and remove it from the fire, and take two arienzos of saffron, well-ground, and blended with red wine, cast it into the prepared arugula, etc.
