Sauce for Cockerel Pieces. Get marjoram and the cockerels' livers, egg yolks, pepper and cinnamon, grind everything together and strain it with verjuice and a little rosewater; when enough of it has strained for the number of bowls you want of it, put the proper amount of sugar on top; alternatively, pour this sauce over the cockerels that you have first cut up and fried in good lard; when they have fried, remove the lard, put in the sauce and bring it to a boil with the pieces of cockerel; serve it in plates.
