To make calf mesentery that one calls charpie. Take your meat when it is completely cooked, cut it up very small, and fry it in lard. Crush ginger and saffron. Beat some raw eggs, and thread them onto your meat in the lard. Crush spices and add some Spice Powder. However, some do not wish any Spice Powder in it, and eat it with Green Verjuice [Sauce].
