2 red sandalwood
2 oz white sandalwood
1 oz white extract from sugar cane
5 qts rosewater
2 lbs sugar
Take two ozs each of red and white sandalwood, and an 1 oz of manna, the white extract from sugar cane. Pound the sandalwood and cook it in 5 qts of rosewater until the substance is extracted.
Remove the part which is clean and mix it with 2 lbs sugar, using bamboo shoots. Put this in a bag and boil until it turns into syrup.
The advantages are: it helps reduce fever caused by jaundice; it quenches thirst, relieves all other illness. It does not cause retention or thinness of urine. It fortifies the stomach, the liver, and the other organs, and in this it is extraordinary.
 This recipe was not tried by the Medieval Spanish Chef due to the difficulty in obtaining the ingredients.
