And grynde in a morter; temper it thou schalle
With swongen egges, but not to thynne;

And rolle it on balles, I undurstonde,
In gretnes of crabbes; I harde say
In boylande water thou kast hom may.
To harden then take hom oute to cole,
And play fresshe brothe fayre and well;

And take thy balles or thou more do,
And put there in; boyle alle in fere
And serve it forthe for tuskyne dere.
