Recipes from John Crophill's Commonplace Book - 28 Burgeoun de Vyne

Recipes from John Crophill's Commonplace Book (Harley MS 1735)

This manuscript is dated before 1485.

The 68 recipes in John Crophill's Commonplace Book are on pages 16v through 28v.

Images of the original manuscript are freely available on the British Library website.

I have done my best to provide an accurate, but readable transcription. Common abbreviations have been expanded, the letters thorn and yogh have been replaced with their modern equivalents, and some minor punctuation has been added.

Aside from being somewhat cryptic, this recipe also appears to be unique. I could not find any comparable recipes in other sources.
