These are the last two recipes in section one of the culinary recipe collection in Cod Pal Germ 551. the second section, in a different hand, begins several pages later. Neither recipe is very interesting – one is a preventive folk remedy, the other a fragmentary repetition of the ‘roasted milk’ #38.
63 A beverage
If you would make a good and noble beverage so that you will not develop drusz (a sickness – the word is related to Verdruss, disappointment) in the course of a year and that no pus (eyter) may damage you in a year, take wormwood and boil it in goat’s milk, and when it has boiled, strain it through a cloth. Drink it at night and in the morning on an empty stomach and you will be safe from pus (eyter) and the drwsene (illness) etc.
64 A roasted milk
If you would make roasted milk that has not fully set (?fast durch kumen) and that has stuck to the pot. Strike the sweet matter down onto a white cloth. Wrap it in that and weight it strongly, and then let it lie from morning till night as you have written of before (reference to recipe #38).
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.
