Another way to boyle Chickens, or Pidgeons, with Gooseberryes, or Grapes. BOyle them with Mutton broth, and white Wine, a piece of whole Mace, put into the bellies of them sweet Hearbes: when they be tender thicken it with a piece of Maunchet, and two hard yolkes strained with some of the same broth. Then put some of the same broth into a boyld-meat dish, with Uergis, Butter, and Sugar, and so boyle your Grapes, or Gooseberryes in the Dish close couered, till they be tender, & poure it on the brest of your dish.
