“I found this amongst several medieval English recipes I extracted from different editions of medieval manuscripts containing 15th and 16th century recipes. The original recipe calls for hyssop but I doubt it is commonly available, so just leave that out. Also the original suggests chicken or veal as meat but I'll post it with chicken.”
