Jean Poingdestre har efter al sandsynlighed forfattet bogen omkring 1683, og i bogens kapitel 5, de allersidste linjer, fandt jeg efterfølgende interessante udsagn: "....The fift yeare they sowe it with oates before Christmas, & sometimes with winter Rye; then lett the ground rest at least as many yeares, in which time it will bring forth very sweete grasse; & if the yeares be any thing moist it will yeeld them excellent hay & in great plenty. In these arable grounds they pasture theire kine, which affoard them very delicate butter, much esteemed for tast & colour: but for cheese they make very litle; & the which is made is subicct to growe drye & hard, if care be not taken to preuent it."  (Lokale fortæller, at bogen er skrevet på "gammel engelsk).

Mig bekendt har vi her det ældste udsagn om, at jerseysmør ved sin smag og farve adskiller sig fra andet smør.

stamp

Smør-stempel. Hver farm på Jersey-øen havde deres eget smørmærke, så kunderne vidste, hvem der havde fremstillet smørret. Dette mærke tilhørte således Le Ruez.
