[24] To make fine yellow clareyt. [25] Take half a pint of Flemish honey and a [26] vierendeel [approx. 1.3 litres or 2 pints] of water. One shall boil this together. Also [27] one shall skim it well. When it is well boiled so take [28] it from the fire. Then take cinnamon, white [29] ginger, each half an ounce. Cloves, grains of paradise [30] each two drachms. Nutmegs, galingale, saffron [31] each a drachm [3.9 g]. Long pepper a scruple [1.2 g]. From this make powder and put it in a quart of [G2r] white wine and mix this all together in the wine [2] and in the aforesaid honey. This being done, so pour [3] it through the sack eight or nine times until it is clear [4] enough. But the sack must be well covered above [5] so that the air does not escape and the vat which stands underneath [6] must also be covered so that no air [7] escapes. You shall also know that bastard wine or Greek wine [8] is better for this than other wine. Item. One shall [9] know that red wine from Spain, which one calls [10] vino tinto is good above all other wines. Item. One [11] shall know that all clareyts are better one day [12] old than younger.
