Tripe with Spinach
Game and Offal

Tripe boiled in mutton broth with spinach and lettuce, served on bread sops. Although the receipt here is very ancient (Huswife 1594) tripe alongside spinach gets mentioned as late as Oliver Goldsmith's poem 'The Haunch of Venison' of about 1770.

Original Receipt in 'The Good Huswifes Handmaide for the Kitchin' 1594 by Thomas Dawson, (Huswife 1594)
