A CURIOUS OLD RECIPE FOR TURKEY IN STRAWBERRY LEAVES

(origin unknown)
 

"Gather strawberry leaves on Lamas Eve, press them in the distillery until the aromatick perfume thereof becomes sensible.

Take a fat turkey and pluck him, and baste him, then enfold him carefully in the strawberry leaves. Then boil him in water from the well, and add rosemary, velvet flower, lavender, thistles, stinging nettles, and other sweet-smelling herbs.

Add also a pinte of canary wine, and half a pound of butter and one of ginger passed through the sieve.

Sieve with plums and stewed raisins and a little salt.

Cover him with a silver dish cover."
