Venison wraps from Cod Pal Germ 551

49 A dish of three pancakes (lit.: sheets)

If you would make a lovely dish of eggs, make three pancakes (bleter), one green, the second red, the third white. Then take venison, the best you may get, that is boiled and well seasoned with raisins and spread that out, as much/thickly as there is. Wrap them around themselves like letters, each one separately. And make a batter for this with which you cover them on the inside. Fry them in fat and do not oversalt.

I owe thanks to my friend Libby Cripps for pointing me to the as yet untranslated fifteenth-century culinary recipe collection that is bound with similar works on fabric dyes and on medicine in the Heidelberg Cod Pal Germ 551. It looks, at first glance, unexceptional, but I will try to keep up a flow of recipes and see whether it has anything of particular interest to offer.
