To Bake a Turkey or Capon


Bone the Turkey but not the Capon, parboil them, and stick Cloves on their brests, lard them and season them well with Pepper and Salt, and put them in a deep Coffin with good store of Butter, and close your Pie, and bake it, and soak it very well; when it is baked, fill it up with melted Butter, and when it is quite cold, serve it in and eat it with Mustard and Sugar: garnish it with Bay Leaves.
