Preparation of Kashkâb. Take bread made from semolina and put it in a pot of clay or earthenware, and put it in the oven in which you leave it until it rises. Then throw it in water or honey according to the sweetness you desire and leave it until it moistens nicely. Then forcefully squeeze it with your hand until you remove all its moistness. Put it to one side. Sieve the water with a thickly woven kerchief of clean linen and put it in a rapacious [sic] vessel...[words missing]... and put in it rue cut in pieces, if God wishes, may He be praised.
