Wafer Irons

These were used to bake wafers (including communion wafers); see the Velislav Picture Bible (c. 1340) or St. Wenzel (1509) for a demonstration of their use. Historic Food: Wafer Making includes some recipes, and examples of wafers made from early modern irons. More notes can be found at Stefan's Florilegium, Calon Scrolls, and Coquinaria.
