X To make a sauce for peacocks. If you want to make sauce for a peacock, take liverings and black grapes with them, of good size every one, and good spices, ginger and fine cinnamon and cloves and a few nutmegs and four grains of pepper with a little galangale and a little cassia, and temper these things with good Varnaccia wine and greek wine with good vinegar, and this sauce one wishes to give cooked in a vat of fat that fell from the roast, and a little sugar, and enough for a dog make so the sauce.
