I am unsure of the date on the actual recipe but it is in a cookbook collection that has been modeled on the writings of Hildegard of Bingen. The date given is 1098-1179. Her biography states that she wrote on the connection between nature, folk remedies and the use of food to balance the humors.

Do we actually have period recipes for it, or are you reconstructing a 
plausible guess at how they did it in period based on how it was done later?
