Sugared Capon. Get big fat capons, two days dead; when they are cleaned well, boil them, but not to the point they are overcooked; take them out of the pot to drain; then get enough fine sugar for the size of the capons you wish to sugar, and break up the sugar and dissolve it in rosewater and boil it a little; then pour the dissolved sugar over the capons so they are completely covered, along with good cinnamon; they are eaten almost immediately.
