Recipes from the Wagstaff Miscellany - 174 Sole yn Brace

Recipes from the Wagstaff Miscellany (Beinecke MS 163)

This manuscript is dated about 1460.

The 200 (approx.) recipes in the Wagstaff miscellany are on pages 56r through 76v.

Images of the original manuscript are freely available on the Yale University Library website.

I have done my best to provide an accurate, but readable transcription. Common abbreviations have been expanded, the letters thorn and yogh have been replaced with their modern equivalents, and some minor punctuation has been added.

174. Sole yn Brace
Scle solys draw hem rost hem that they be ynowgh ley hem yn dyschys make brace as thy dost to the breme with sauce clovys macys & poudyr hit on & serve hit forth.


This recipe is a match for recipe 109 from A Noble Boke off Cookry.
To mak a sole in brasse tak and sley soiles and draw hym and rost hym and lay hym in a dysshe and mak the same bras ye did to the breme saue clowes and maces and serue it.  [A Noble Boke off Cookry (England, 1468)]

The phrase "poudyr hit on" in the Wagstaff version may be a copying error for "pour it on".
