Syrup of Jujubes. Take two ratls of jujubes and an ûqiya each of purslane [rujlâ] and lettuce; cook all this in five ratls of water, then clarify it and add it to two ratls of sugar, and cook until it takes the form of a syrup. Drink an ûqiya of it with three of cold water. It benefits in periodical fevers, purifies thick blood, calms the cough, cuts thirst, and lightens the constitution.
