Chawdwyn. Take Gysers, lyuers, and hertes of Swannes, or of wilde gese; And if the guttes be fatte, slytte hem, and cast hem there-to, And boile hem in faire water; And then take hem vppe, And hew hem smale, and caste into the same broth ayene, but streyne hit thorgh a streynour firste; And caste thereto pouder of peper and of canell, and salt, and vinegre, And lete boile; And then take the blode of the swan, and fressh broth, and brede, and drawe hem thorgh a streynour and cast thereto, And lete al boyle togidre; And then take pouder of Gynger, whan hit is al-moost ynough, And caste [correction; sic = MS. caste caste] there-to, And serue it forthe.
