      pretty big earthen Pan, or Bason, and take a pretty big birchen rod,
      and beate it till the froth doth rise, and then take it of(f) with a
      stirre, and put it into the thing you would have it goe in, it should
      bee a glasse Sillibubbe pot, if you have it if not, a white creame
      dish will serve you should lett it stand a pretty while before you
      eate it, because it should settle with a little kinde of drinke at the
