Stuffing for a Calf’s Intestine. Get an intestine, clean it thoroughly and scrape it-it should be fat; then get clean walnuts, half a clove of garlic, a little old Parmesan cheese, fine spices, saffron and raisins, with a little veal fat that is cut as finely as possible but not ground up, and two eggs, and mix all this together; stuff the intestine so that it is a little more than half full. With these same ingredients you can stuff goat kids - I mean, quarters of a boiled kid - and capons as well.
