puree prepared of linseed (flax-seed)


Explanation:
linseed, flax-seed puree (thin gruel)

Indeed, I an sure the translatoin sounds as follows:

...Small bags (sacks) filled with a puree prepared from linseed and boiled and as hot as one can afford are imposed on ...

Nice to hear that helped (I mean both those sacks and advice) :)
