Take proines and steep them in claret wine. Then take out the stones, and stamp them with a few blanched almonds, and a toste of bread soaked in the wine wherein the proines were steeped. Stampe all this together, tempering them with a little verjuice and other bastard wine, or sugar which is better. Then straine them, and put spice unto them, specially sinamon.
