73. Another THIN Sauce for Roasted Squabs. Roast the livers of the squabs over the coals and grind them in a mortar; and take grated cheese, and vinegar, and grind them all together with the said squab livers; and after it is ground, blend it with broth or hot water, and strain it through a sieve, and cast it in the pot where it must boil; and cast in these ground spices: pepper and grains_of_paradise; and boil it, little by little, stirring with a stick constantly in one direction, otherwise the thin sauce will separate.
