Cold cows Leg With garlic

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

Cold cow's leg with garlic. Wash the cow's leg, put it into a pot, add some salt and boil it until it no longer stinks. Fill another pot with some water and throw out the previous boiled water. Fill it up with cold water and cook it. Don't put too much salt into it. Once cooked, pass through a strainer its water into a clean pot, this way the water and the meat will cool. Peel the garlic and break it, once the water is cool put it into the pot. Put the meat onto a plate, but not too much, for it's not appropriate for cold dishes to have too much meat and so little broth.
