   Rapey.  Take half fyges and half raisouns; pike hem
   and waishe hem in water.  Skalde hem in wyne, bray hem
   in a morter, and drawe them thurgh a straynour.  Cast
   hem in a pot and therwith powdur of peper and oother
   good powdours; alay it vp with flour of rys, and
   colour it with saundres.  Salt it, seeth it & messe it
   125 g/4 oz well-soaked dried figs
   125 g/4 oz stoned raisins
   275 ml/10 fl oz/1 1/4 cups red wine (not too dry)
   Good pinch of ground black pepper
   1/3 teaspoon ground cinnamon
   1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
   Soft dark brown sugar to taste
   3 teaspoons rice flour or cornflour
   A drop or two of red food colouring
   Salt to taste
   Drain the figs, reserving the soaking liquid.  Discard
   the stalk ends of the fruit and put them in a saucepan
   with the raisins and wine. Add the spices and a
   teaspoon of sugar and bring to the boil.  Take off the
   heat and cool slightly, then turn the mixture into an
   electric blender and process until smooth.  Add a
   little of the soaking water if the mixture is
   stubbornly solid.
   Cream the rice flour or cornflour with a little more
   soaking water or wine and brighten the tint with a
   drop of food colouring.  Blend the 'cream' into the
   dried-fruit puree.  Then return the whole mixture to
   the saucepan and simmer until it thickens slightly.
   Season with salt and a little extra sugar if you wish.
   The mixture can be served hot or cold over a sweet
   cereal dish, firm stewed fruit or - best of all- ice
   cream.  Some versions in other manuscripts are stiffer
   and make a good filling for tartlets or fried puffs.
   One encloses the filling in pastry to make dumplings.
