36. Vinegar Which is Marinated Liver. You will take onions, and cut them very small, like fingers. And fry them gently with fatty bacon. And then take the liver of a kid, or a lamb, or a goat and cut them into slices the size of a half walnut; and fry it gently with the onion until the liver loses its color. Then take a crustless piece of toasted bread soaked in white vinegar. And grind it well. And thin it with sweet white wine. And then strain it through a woolen cloth. And then cast it over the onion and the liver, all together in the casserole, and cast in ground cinnamon, and cook until it is well-thickened; and when it is cooked, prepare dishes.
