XVII To make Renfuso. If you want to make renfuso, take liverings and boil them with water and grind them well and temper them with with a little almond milk and with Vernaccia wine and with a little vinegar, and if you cannot get Vernaccia wine, put in the best white that you can get and greek wine and cook it until it becomes thick in a fashion, and put in cloves and good cinnamon and grains of paradise, and these rich spices slice with a knife, and then crush them with a mortar, and these spices put then in the renfuso, and two good handfuls of pepper with a little sugar, and this is good with roasted goslings or else with geese.
