BORAGE. If your prince or lord is sick, boil some borage like this. Wash the borage, clean it in warm water, then squeeze out the water, cook some beef or lamb in a small jar. Once the meat is half cooked, put the borage into it with some nutmeg flower, add some vinegar and a bit of black pepper. Ask the doctor, for it is no shame to learn new things.
