plum For Fasting

This is an excerpt from The Prince of Transylvania's Court Cookbook
(Hungary, 16th c.)
The original source can be found at

Plum for fasting. If cooking plum for a fasting man, be it lord or prince, wash it like I told you; once it's clean, add some milk, almonds, raisins, saffron, black pepper and carnation; but the saffron is for coloring only; cook it, then let it cool and serve it.
