Original Receipt from 'A True Gentlewomans Delight' by 'WJ', 1653 (Gent.Delight 1653)

Take a Leg of Mutton, or Lamb, cut out the flesh, and take heed you break not the skin of it, then perboyle it, and mince it with a little Beef suet, put into it a little sweet Hearbs shred, three of four dates sliced, a little beaten Nutmeg, Cloves, and Mace, a few Currans, a little Sugar, a little Verjuyce, three or four Eggs, mix them together, and put them in the skin, and set it in a dish and bake it.
