hen With Black pepper Dust

This is an excerpt from The Prince of Transylvania's Court Cookbook

Hen with black pepper dust. Wash it and roast it like the others. Prepare the black pepper dust: Peel a garlic, break it, pour vinegar onto it and add some black pepper; if the vinegar is strong, add a bit of beef water. When serving it, put it into a pot and let the black pepper stand on the fire. Don't let the black pepper dust boil, for it will take the garlic's strength. Pour it onto the hen.
