Old Elizabethan Recipe
Take strong Mutton Broth, and truss a Capon, and boil him in it with
some Marrow and a little Salt in a Pipkin, when it is tender, then put
in a pint of White Wine, half a pound of Sugar, and four Ounces of Dates
stoned and sliced, Potato Roots boiled and blanched, large Mace and
Nutmeg sliced, boil all these together with a quarter of a pint of
Verjuyce, then dish the Capon, and add to the Broth the yolks of six
Eggs beaten with Sack.
