Preparation

Take a pound of dates and remove seeds. Cut them into fourths and steep them in five quarts of water, discard the dregs immediately and add 1 lb of sugar. Cook this to 230ºF/110ºC to make a syrup.

Drink two ounces of it in three ounces of cold water. It is beneficial in jaundice, and cures it; it cuts bilious vomit and thirst, increases the appetite, and removes the bitter taste of food from the mouth.

Also, the concentrated syrup is excellent on ice cream and other desserts.
