Rastons: Rastons is a bread preparation dating from the 15th century that may be as simple as bread and butter or embellished like this:
Pleasance had shown a couple of the lads how to make rastons in one of the cooling ovens, loaves sweetened with wild honey and scooped out to be stuffed with a mixture of breadcrumbs, butter and onions, then heated again until the butter melts
