Gwen hungry now Cat

114. Hollow out the white cabbage/ take vealmeat/ and put it in a broth
especially the quick [lean?] that has no leg [bone?]/ when it is cooked/ so take it out/
and cool it/ chop it with beef fat and bacon/ pepper 
and yellow [saffron] it. Take small raisons thereunder/ and poached birds/ fill the 
cabbage therewith/ and fill [cover] the opening/ that the filling does not climb out/ 
pour beef broth/ that is lightly salted/ thereover/ and let it simmer therewith/ 
so it will be good and welltasting.
