'Asîda Made with Grits that Nourishes and Fattens. Take the mentioned cracked wheat and pour water on to cover it. Cook it until the water dries up and then moisten it with fresh milk and stir until done. Then add skimmed honey and grease from meat cooked with its fat. Repeat this several times until it is "balanced." Then add fresh butter and ground sugar, fanid (pulled taffy) and ground cinnamon. Serve it and it is a good dish.
