Pie of Cock's Combs with the Testicles. Get combs and cut them into three, and livers into four, and leave the testicles whole; get a little lardo and cut it very small and do not pound it; get three ounces of veal fat and pound it well-veal or beef marrow would be better; then get thirty dry sour cherries, cinnamon, ginger and plenty of sugar, and mix all that together; make a good pie and bake it in the oven - and make its crust as is used in pies; alternatively, put it into a pan; when it is cooked, get an egg yolk, verjuice and saffron and, mixed together, put all that into the pie and heat it again, then take it out.
