Preparing Liftiyya (a Dish of Turnips) with Walnuts and Sugar. Take fat meat and cut it middling size, wash and put it in the pot; pour in oil, salt, and enough water to cover the meat and put on the fire until the water is absorbed. When it has been absorbed, throw in the pot three spoons of vinegar, two of murri, pepper, coriander seed and some sugar, and take walnuts, peel and cut up like dirhams and throw in the pot. Boil until cooked, and when it is cooked, pound pepper and shelled walnuts and throw in, and take off the fire and serve.
