Re: [Apicius] Digest Number 550 (re: gute Frage)
- I'm fairly sure we'll have a bit of trouble finding
actual doormice at a butcher. They are incredibly
labor intensive. The Romans raised them in little
round clay pots that had rings around the inside
surface. The mice nested in there in the dark and ate
and ate. They got no exercise, and got very fat, and
so were such a delicacy. I don't think anyone now
would have the patience for that.
