Pork with bacon slices. Do the same like I told you before with the meat; put it in a clean pot when boiling it, add spices, don't add salt just yet, do it later, slice some fat bacon. When boiling it to make it tender, pass through a strainer the water onto a clean pot and put it on the fire, put white bread onto it, but peel it beforehand, then add onions; take out the bacon and the parsley leaves, cut it with a knife, put them together and boil it. When it's time, add spices, black pepper, ginger how your lord likes it; and you may add saffron as well.
