A PASTE THAT FORTIFIES THE STOMACH, THE LIVER, AND THE BRAIN ADAPTED FROM HUCI’S TRANSLATION OF ANÓN, AL-ÁNDALUS #528 p 290
4 oz cumin
2 tbsp olive oil
4 oz caraway
4 oz black mustard seed
3 lbs honey
Fry the cumin in olive oil. Grind it with caraway and black mustard seed.
Heat honey in a heavy saucepan until it begins to boil. Lower the heat and gently boil until the honey reaches 240ºF/115ºC while skimming it.
This will take about 15 minutes.
Add the seasoning. Pour the mixture out on cookie sheets and cool in the refrigerator. When cool enough to make solid balls, break off pieces and roll them into the size of a walnut. Serve after meal times to be sucked.
The benefits: it clears mucus from the lungs and digests food, clears the head, gently lightens the body, diminishes mild coughs and gently dried black bile.
 The seasoning is much to strong for today’s taste. One forth of each ingredient is recommented at most.
