Then take the Oysters, pick and beard them, and parboyle them: then put them out of the broth into a Cullinder, and then put them into the Pipkin. Then take a few Razins of the Sunne, and if you loue the iuyce of an Onyon, first boyle some Onyons by themselues, and straine them, and then put them into the Pipkin, and serue it in with what garnish you haue.
