Duke's Powder
Photo by: Lord-Williams
pólvora dulce Cat. pólvora de duch, Eng “the duke’s powders.” This seems to be a corruption of pólvera dulce, sweet powder or sweet ground spices. Nola gives two recipes for this but these are the spices used when in making hipprocas. All that is lacking is the addition of  ½ red wine and ½ white wine white, see hiprocrás. On the other hand, it could be a sauce made with cloves, ginger, sugar and cinnamon. [ES: Carroll-Mann. Guisados 2-art. Jun 6, 01: ftn 9; Nola.1989:xiii-1:xiii-2; and Nola/Pérez. 1994:185:191:206]
