72. THIN Sauce for RoastED Squabs. Take the livers of the squabs, and roast them in the coals so that they are not very roasted; and you can add a little liver of kid, or of sheep; and grind everything with a crustless piece of toasted bread soaked in white vinegar; and when it is all well-ground, blend it with broth or with water that is well-salted, and strain it through a woolen cloth; and then put it in a pot, and cook it there; and cast in pepper, and ground ginger, and give it a brief boil.
