Ingredients

1 c mint leaves
1 c *basil leaves
1 c citron leaves
1 c cloves
2 c sugar

Preparation

Coarsely chop the leaves and place them in a cheesecloth bag with 1 c of whole cloves. Put them in a saucepan and cover 2 ¼ cups of water. Bring this to a gentle boil over medium-high heat. Then reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes.

Add the sugar and boil gently for about 5 minutes until the sugar is dissolved. Remove from heat and let cool. Remove the cheesecloth bag and drink it. 

This syrup frees bodies of excess mucus in the respiratory system and relieves urinary infections. It fortifies the liver and the stomach and improves one’s disposition. It is an admirable drink.

*The original recipe calls for “babaq.” Huici states that this word is unknown. Perry translates it as basil.
