THE STINGFISH has three places it is dangerous to touch, that is the places on the back near the head, the ears ; and touch it with nothing except the knife, and throw everything out of it, and pull the innards out through the vent, and then cut it crossways in several places, roast it, and eat with verjuice and butter, or verjuice with powdered spices. Otherwise, cook it a little in water, then fry in butter, then boil in verjuice with the rest of the butter, and throw (spices) on it.
