Having changed the heading to better reflect this blatant grab for more
posts on the subject of "cuskynoles" by a certain archivist,
have you taken a look recently at what one sees when one googles
"cuskynoles" ?

BTW for anyone that doesn't own Hieatt and Butler's Curye on Inglysch
(one of the essential volumes to own if one wants to study and cook  
medieval English cookery)
Devra sells it for a very bargain $29.95.
Curye on Inglysch; English Culinary Manuscripts of the Fourteenth  
Century - $29.95
Edited by Constance Hieatt & Sharon Butler. Original recipes and  
spelling, in readable modern type. Select bibliography, extensive  
notes, comparison of various mss. Glossary. 224p. Oxford Univ Press.

That's probably less than I paid back in 1985! You should own a copy  
so you don't have to beg for a scan.
