Sauce for a fatted capon. Collect the fat and liver from the capon, strain with beef broth through cheesecloth, soak a bit of ginger with verjuice, and boil everything together in a pan. Thicken it generously with beaten egg yolks and some sugar. Lift the wings and thighs of your capon, and pour your sauce on top.
