>>walnuts for making mixed preserves/compost
>Speaking of Le Menagier, there is yet another translation out (Gina

I haven't seen the new one. Last time I checked, the only complete
translation of the cooking section, or at least the only one I could
find, was the translation Janet Hinson (Mairoli Bhan) did long ago
that I included in Volume II of my collection. It's on my web page.
