Cold dish from liver. Slice some sweet kalach, pour wine onto it in a three itze big pot, soak it overnight, stir it, put it on the fire. Add some milk to a pan, melt it, pour wine to the pan, cook it for a bit; pour this onto the kalach, then heat it. Pour the melted kalach through a sieve, then rinse the pot; paste the pot with some butter, pour this onto it, it will look like a porridge, boil it. Stir it while boiling. Once warm, add some saffron and wine, stir it, add some ginger, black pepper, nutmeg flower, cinnamon; once boiling, add some salt; let it boil, and if it becomes very dense, pour some wine onto it; don't boil it for longer than eggs, but it should be dense like porridge.
