A Boiled Ray


Take a ray, and draw him (gut him) in the belly, and cut him in pieces, and set him in water, and no salt, and serve him forth cold.

And his sauce is verjuice (sauce from sour apples), or liver with mustard.

And boil the liver with him, and serve him forth.

and views available there have plans and depictions of gardens from
the medieval period through to the late nineteenth century.
