To boil a Capon or chicken with Colliflowers in the French Fashion


Cut off the buds of your flowers, and boil them in milk with a little mace till they be very tender; then take the yolks of 2 eggs, strain them with a quarter of a pint of sack; then take as much thick butter, being drawn with a little vinegar and a slic’t lemon, brew them together; then take the flowers out of the milk, and put them into the butter and sack: then dish up your Capon, being tender boil’d, upon sippets finely carved, and pour on the sauce, and serve it to the Table with a little salt.
