152. Another Good Arugula to be Made Swiftly. Take the little loaf of the arugula and scrape it on top where you see that it is dirty; and [take] the quantity of cinnamon that you wish to make, and toast a crustless piece of bread, and having soaked it in vinegar, grind it with the arugula; and cast in your honey and a little red or white wine with it; and heat it on a fire of coals in a kettle; and give it a little boil, so that the honey will incorporate with the arugula and with the other things and it is made. You can add a little cinnamon and ginger if you wish.
