VII - Good taste / relish of chickens (pullets). To give good flavor to chickens, take grated apples and make wine by hand (juice), and put into that wine good sweet spices, and if it seems to you too strong, mix aniseed ground, or rose water. Or use wine (juice) of grated apples sharp and wine of good sweet grapes, and put these two wines together and enough sweet spices. If you don't have enough grapes put in a little honey and let it boil: the spices will be raw: you do not want it to be made that spoils, spills, wastes (guasta).
