When drawing the capon, put aside the liver, the heart, and gizzard, and chop them very finely.
Here are four different stuffings: 1.
Minced liver with the same quantity of fat green bacon and ham.
Minced liver with the same quantity of mushrooms, 1 tablespoonful of goose-liver paste or foie gras and some truffle peelings.
Minced liver with the same quantity of soft white breadcrumbs soaked in stock, with green olives and mushrooms.
Minced liver, boiled peeled chestnuts, sausage meat and mushrooms.
Stuff the capon with one of these stuffings, finely chopped; sew or skewer up the openings, and place the bird in a saucepan on a layer of fat bacon with sliced carrots and onions; add a bunch of mixed herbs, salt, pepper, stock, and the white wine.
Simmer covered over a very moderate heat for 1 1/2 hours, basting frequently.
Or do it in a fireproof dish with a lid in the oven.
Put the capon on a hot dish.
Strain the sauce, bind it with 1 tablespoonful of butter mixed with the same quantity of flour and pour it over the capon.
