A Syrup of Benefit Against the Burning of Jaundice and Ringworm. Take juice pressed from shashtaraj (fumitory), which is known as "children's greens," and juice pressed from endive (chicory), which is known as taifaq, and juice pressed from borage, half a ratl of each. Boil it on the fire, clarify it and add a ratl of sugar. The bag: put in a ratl of the skin of yellow myrobalan, cooked until it falls apart and forced through a cloth. Cook all this until it takes the form of a syrup. Drink three ûqiyas of this in half a ratl of fresh milk.
