Greetings! A historical re-enactor in Sweden posted her web site 
(http://eldrimner.wordpress.com/) where she has a blog in English about 
some of her period cookery attempts.  She refers to several German 
texts, including a bean recipe from "Ein Buch von guter spise".  She 
commented: "Though the translation said to boil the beans I was more or 
less seething them rather than boiling them – and I might be wrong here 
but I believed that the German word siude, is similar to sjuda in 
swedish meaning to seethe rather than boil."  I thought that this was an 
interesting observation and possibly "on the mark" regarding the English 
translation. She also has recipes from Sabina Welserin with commentary 
on how the recipe turned out.

I think a number of you will find her experiments interesting.  She's a 
recent subscriber to the Tudor Cook Forum and cooks in a 
mid-17th-century kitchen.  (Glimmingehus in Sweden)
