CXXX - To make orange dish good and delicate. Take the peel of the orange and make in those pieces that you want and pick clean well within (remove white pith), put to soak for 15 days then boil in much water until they are tender, let them dry for three days, then put them in the honey that you want and boil for three days (bring to a boil every day for three days), then let it boil a little and change, then take that honey and put with the other with the spices: but first the spices must be put within and boiled with the skimmed honey, boil well until the honey is well cooked, then leave a quantity of days in the air without sun.
