      Where did you find it on the web?

      Any translation is better than no translation, that's what got me started.

      Any posting about medieval German food is on topic here. I started
      the group for my Rumpolt translation, but it isn't limited to that.
      Anything you post would be very welcome.

      I believe this recipe is included in Mistress Hauviette (Channon
      Mondoux) Celebration at the Sarayi. It was one I test cooked, but my
      notes are on a dead computer. http:www.rencuisine.com

      thut is tut - do or put, I think "fail" might be "full" or filling.
      I'd translate it as:

      Item, sheep meat, chopped small, that one puts a spoonful on a grape
      leaf, one winds (or wraps) it together like a dumpling, among it one
      also has sour plums, one boils off only in water, that should be for
      them also a good lordly dish and has thereto the vine leaves always
      over the filling.

      >Also include chopped sour plums, and boil it alone

      Krapffen are a filling wrapped in dough like a pierogi or ravioli. I
      haven't seen any unfilled ones.
