Leon estógamo, Eng. stomach. A pig’s stomachs could be filled with meat or inflated to serve as a ball. Traditionally the English soccer season commenced after the pigs were slaughtered and ended when all the balls had burst! The 13th C Anón Al-Andalus has several recipes to alleviate human stomach problems. [Anón/Huici.1966: 488:267: 528:286:538:290 etc. Ares. Gastronomía. 2000:24]

Preparation

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.
