Preparation

Boil endives, bugloss and borage in water and save 3 cups of the water done. 

Chop the chicken with the bones. Put it in a pressure cooker with the cloves, cinnamon, saunders and grapes. Cover it with the water used to boil the greans. 

Bring to 15 pounds pressure and cook 15 minutes. Turn off heat and allow pressure to reduce to normal. Strain the broth.

This it such a miraculous drink that it will raise the dead. Normally, this “torta” is given only to those who are too sick to drink. 


[1] Nola calls for a glaze earthenware or glass alembic to distill the liquid. This author used a pressure cooker as there was no alembic available. 
[2] This must be a scribal error as “torta” means cake
