   Posted by: Julia Redlich   in Medieval Menu, Medieval Miscellany


1kg pork or veal mince (or mix of both)
1 cup soft breadcrumbs
Mixed herbs
Tsp black pepper
½ tsp ground ginger
1 egg
Slivered almonds
A handful of currants


Mix mince, breadcrumbs, herbs, pepper, ginger and egg together. Shape small amounts of mixture to resemble half pears. Stick slivered almonds (about 7 – 8 for each) into the shapes and add currants for eyes.

Place on a greased tray and bake in a moderate oven for about 30 minutes. Serve on a tasting platter with fresh herbs.
