Pariola for Chickens, Cockerels or Capons on a Spit. Get pepper, ginger and saffron and grind them up well; then get the livers of those fowl and hard-boiled egg yolks, and a little onion if you like it, and grind all this together and distemper it with verjuice or some other sweet liquid; then take the chickens or capons or cockerels, cut them up and put them in a pot together with the above-mentioned things, and stew them for a short while; then make up a plate and serve with spices on top.
