A 17th Century Aphrodisiac Rump of Beef
Take a rump of beef and season it with nutmegs grated, and some Pepper and Salt mingled together, and season the beef on the bony side; lay it in a pipkin with the fat side downward. Take three pints of Elder-wine vinegar, and as much water, and three great onions, and a bunch of rosemary tied up together: put them all into the pipkin, and stew them three or four hours together with a soft fire, being covered close. Then dish it up upon sippets, blowing off the fat from the gravy; and some of the gravy put on the beef, and serve it up.
An Ancient Chinese love potion
Pound the shell of a male venus's comb (a mullosk) to a very fine powder, add some urine, and let stand for three days, after which time put it out at noon to dry in the sund. Then dip this in donkey-water and allow it to steep another threee days. Again let it dry in the noonday sun and then sprinkle it lightly with the dew of flower blossoms; this will disperse the odor of the urine. Drink from the solution at the time of copulation and you will be endowed with extraoridinary potency.
