Posted to the SCA_recipes LiveJournal community. Soy sauce is used in place of recipe #340253; if you want it to be accurate, make that first. "Take the flesh of a young fat lamb, put in the pot with salt, onion, coriander seed, pepper, caraway, two spoons of oil and one of murri naqî '; put on a moderate fire and then take cabbage, its tender "eyes"; take off the leaves and chop small with the heads, wash, and when the meat is almost done, add the cabbage. Then pound red meat from its tender parts and beat in the bowl with eggs and the crumb [that is, everything but the crust] of bread, almonds, pepper, coriander and caraway; cover the pot with this little by little and leave on the coals until the sauce dries and the grease comes to the top and serve."

Recipe #340259

From the 1553 German Cookbook of Sabina Welserin - Nim ain halb pfúnd mandel, mer oder minder, gestosen, darnach man sý will grosß machen, nim púterschmaltz, siben air, das weisß darúon, solchs dúrchainandergemischt, nachmals ain lot rerlen darúnder, doch der merer tail daraúfgestret vnnd die torten mit rossenwasser besprengt, aúch soll man darzú nemen vngeferlich ain 1/2 pfúnd zúcker, daranthon/jst aúch gút/ nemlich ain eitterlin vom kalb gesotten vnnd klaingehackt. - Take a half pound of ground almonds, more or less, according to how large a tart one will make. Take butter and the whites from seven eggs. Mix everything together, afterwards put a half ounce of cinnamon into it, the largest part, however, sprinkled on top, and sprinkle the tart with rose water. Also take about a half pound of sugar and put it in. The white fat from a leg of veal, cooked and finely chopped, is also especially good. (Translation by Valoise Armstrong, 1998) - DO NOT make this tart with regular supermarket Cassia cinnamon; the texture and flavor are too coarse, and the end product is not pleasant. Check Hispanic groceries for Canel cinnamon, or order it from Penzey's Spices (where it is called Ceylon True Cinnamon) or other online spice merchant.

Cover and let it get golden brown, stirring once in a while. Then cover hen with water and let boil, and season with salt, vinegar, cloves, saffron, black pepper and ginger. When chicken is cooked, pour in 4 beaten yolks. Then take a deep dish, lined with slices of bread, and pour chicken on top."

Recipe #340253

Recipe #340296

A recipe for an almost-white bread, attempting to approximate the bread eaten by the well-to-do commoner in the High Middle Ages. The very well-off and royalty would have eaten manchet bread, which was very similar to white breads of today. The malt syrup helps mimic the flavor of ale barm, which was the commonest form of yeast. The wheat germ and whole wheat flour mimic the not-quite-fine texture of the less-expensive flours. (The ice cube treatment is definitely not period, but helps ensure a shatteringly crisp crust.)

Recipe #321333

Recipe #126517

Posted to the SCA_recipes LiveJournal community. Soy sauce is a simple substitute for murri naqi. "Take the meat of a young, plump lamb. Cut it in little pieces and put it in a clean pot with salt, pepper, coriander, a little juice of pounded onion, a spoonful of fresh oil and a sufficient amount of water. Put it over a gentle fire and be careful to stir it; put in meatballs and some peeled, split almonds. When the meat is done and has finished cooking, set the pot on the ashes until it is cooled. He who wants this tafaya green can give it this color with cilantro juice alone or with a little mint juice."
