Lethe lory. Take mylke, and caste it in a potte, And caste there-to salt and saffron; and then take and hewe faire buttes of Calvis or porke al smalle and caste thereto. And take the white and yolkes of eyren, And drawe hem thorgh a streynour; And whan the licour is at the boyling, caste there-to the eyren, And a litull Ale, And styrre till hit crudde; And if thou wilt haue hit farced, take mylke, and make hit scalding hote, And cast there-to rawe yolkes of eyren, sugur, powder ginger, Peper, clowes, and maces, And lete hit not fully boyle; And then take a faire lynnen clothe, and presse the cruddes there-on, and then leche it; And ley the leches .ij. or iij. in a dissh, And cast saffron there-on in the dissh, And so serue hit forth al hote.
