For to make a Potage of Rys

The Project Gutenberg EBook of The Forme of Cury (by Samuel Pegge)
original text from about A.D. 1390

For to make a Potage of Rys

—Tak Rys and les hem and wasch hem clene and seth hem tyl they breste and than lat hem kele and seth cast ther'to Almand mylk and colour it wyth safroun and boyle it and messe yt forth.

Modern English

Rice Pottage

—Take Rice and "les them" and wash them clean (unsure of defintion of "less" here but rinsing and washing makes sense in this context) and boil them until the burst and then let them cook, colour it with saffron and boil in almond milk and then serve it forth.
