1. a tapered goblet smaller than a cubo from which nobles drank. They were rarely made of glass, for the cost and fragileness, but could be made of earthenware, pewter, silver, wood or stone. An English type was made of pewter and had a beak, called a pinchón (long point). The Archbishop of Toledo was known to have owned one in the 14 C. Upper classes owned decorated goblets. Although it was thought crude to drink from pitchers made of earthenware, silver or pewter, it was the common way of drinking. 2. a measure of one half cup. 3. thimble shaped pudding mold. 4. Dice box. 5. Bowler hat. See mirrauste. [Gázquez. Cocina. 2002:38:42]

 Preparation

Wash, peel and core the apples. Boil them in water until mushy.

Strain off the broth, while pressing the pulp to release the juice. Save the pulp to make apple sauce and put the broth back into the pot. Add sugar.

Cut the aloe stem into pieces to fit into the cloth bag. Just before adding it to the broth mash it in the bag with a mallet. Add it to the mixture and bring it to a boil. Lower heat. Press a wooden spoon on the bag to release the gel from the aloe stem. Gently boil until a syrup is formed.

When done discard the skin from the aloe stalk in the cloth bag..

Drink 1 oz of the syrup with 2 oz of hot water in a goblet, i.e. 1/8 c to ¼ c. This fortalices the heart and produces happiness.
