Soringue. Scald or skin the eel, cut it into sections, and fry it lightly in oil with leafy parsley and onions sliced into rounds. Take browned bread, puree of peas or boiled water, and wine (mostly), sieve, and boil with the eel. Take ginger, cassia, cloves, grains_of_paradise and saffron (to give it colour), steep in verjuice, and boil with the eel. Season it with vinegar.
