Take sage, parsley, hyssop, savory, onions good, pears, garlic, I say, And grapes. Go fill thy goose then And sew thy hole, no grease out run. Lay her to fire and roast her brown, And keep her grease that falls down. Take galingale, and thou grease that ran, Do it in a posnet, as I thee ken. When thou goose is roasted, take her away, Smite her in pieces, I thee pray. That is within, thou shall take out. Cast in thy posnet with outene doute , if it is thick do thereto wine, And powder of galingale that is fine, And powder douce and salt also. Boil all together ere thou fire go, In a dish thy goose thou close the sauce above, as I suppose.
