Stuffing the pike's intestines. If you have a big, old pike, take out the intestines, wash it, inflate it, then slice a bit from the pike, put it into vinegar for a little while; then add some sliced bacon, if the bacon is new then add some salt, add some sweet spices and small carnation; stuff the intestines with it, then tie it. Then pour equal amount of water and wine into a pot, cover it, let it boil; add some ginger and vinegar, once the pike is cooked, slice the cooked intestines like you slice lemon or radish, then put it to the pike's head. You can stuff pigs' intestines like so, too.
