Artichoaks Stewed.

Artichoaks being boil'd, take out the core, and take off the leaves, cut the Bottoms into quarters, splitting them in the middle, then put them into your flat stewing-pan, with Manchettoasts therein, laying the Artichoaks on them, with an indifferent quantity of Marrow, five or six large Maces, half a pound of preferred Plumbs with the Sirrup, Verjuice, and Sugar; let them thus stew two hours, if you stew them in a Dish, stir them not thence, but serve them up in it, laying on some Barberies preserv'd, and suchlike, so sippet it and serve it up; Instead of preserved Plumbs, you may stew those which are ordinary, and wil do near as well, and are much cheaper.
