What a neat site (http://www.godecookery.com/allrec/allrec.htm)I just stumbled across.

If you're up to some Medieval cooking, check it out. Recipes and all.

Oh. And if you really do want to boyle a calves head with oysters, this is how you do it:


Take the head, and boyle it with Water and Salt, and a little white Wine or Verjuyce, and when it is almost enough, then cut some Oysters, and mingle them together, and a blade or two of Mace, a little Pepper, and Salt, and a little liquour of the Oysters, then put it together, and put it to the Calves head, and the largest Oysters upon it, and a slit Lemon, and Barberries, so serve it in.

Haggis! That's a wonderful site! Some of those recipes are from my favorite eras... and some of 'em even sound GOOD. :) Thanks!

Oh, Haggis, what a horrid thing to say. It’s well documented that OFG was born during the second year of Queen Victoria's reign.
