70. THIN Sauce for Wild Birds, Such as Wild Doves, WOODPigeons and Wild Ducks. You must take wild doves, and woodpigeons, or wild ducks which in Valencia they call fotjas , and roast the said doves, which should not be very roasted, but a little more than half-roasted; and cut them up like one cuts a hen; and cast them into two basins or on two large deep plates; and cast on top of them: ground salt, and vinegar, pepper, and orange juice, all mixed in wine; and beat it a great deal between two plates a long while, so that the juices or thin sauce mix; and mingle it with the cut-up birds; and put them on your plates with your thin sauce and it is good.
