½  oz ginger
½ oz white pepper
¼  oz cinnamon
¼  oz cloves

Preparation

Take carrots, after removing the fibers [lit. "nerves"] that are in the cores, and cook them in water to cover until tender. Put these into a food processor and add clarified honey. Grind all until the carrots are puréed. Put this into a saucepan and fill spice bag with the spices. Cook until the consistency is that of a syrup.

Drink an ounce of this with three of hot water. It is beneficial for increasing urine production and desire; it dissolves phlegm, heats the kidneys admirably, and likewise the other parts of the body, God willing.[1]
