OCast çepo, Eng vine-stalk, grape vine. Avenzoar claims that from time to time he prepared grapevine tendril syrup and verified its beneficial effect to combat nausea and vomiting and, in this sense claimed that it produces an evident and marvelous effect.  It moderately cools and dries and for its astringent power, cleans and cuts acidity. The substance has a fundamental property: it stops vomiting and nausea as no other prepared electuaries and other syrups prepared with this ingredient. [Berceo. Libro. 1983:271:2555; Ibn Zuhr/García Sánchez. 1992:108; and Sas. 1976:130]

Preparation

Grind spices with meat. Put this in broth to dissolve the spices.

Chop the onions and sauté in olive oil until translucent. Add chopped parsley. Then add this to the broth. Boil gently, uncovered for ½ hr.

Remove from heat. Beat the egg yolks and add them to the sauce with the grape juice. Gently stir all together. Add bread soaked in vinegar and serve.


[1] 4 oz ground beef and 4 oz sausage meat were used. If the amount of meat is doubled the result is something like a medieval Sloppy Joe!
[2] Sherry or red wine would give the sauce a pleasant flavor.
