Note


This is an excerpt from Le Menagier de Paris
(France, 1393 - Janet Hinson, trans.)
The original source can be found at David Friedman's website

Note, this great diversity of language, for what we call the lights of a pig is the liver, the lungs and the heart; and what we call the lights of a sheep, is the head, the pancreas, the last stomach and the four feet; and what we call the lights of a calf, is the head, the crow, the pancreas and the four feet; and what we call the lights of a beef, is the pancreas, the stomach, second stomach, spleen, lungs and liver and the four feet; and with venison, yet other words. (One wonders the reason for this diversity on the single word lights.)
