violet paste

Violet Paste. Take a ratl of the flowers and three of honey, after removing its foam. Cook all this until it takes the form of a paste, and eat of it like a nut at meals. Its advantages: it counters dry coughs, softens the belly, cuts bilious thirst and cuts the bile that comes out, God willing.
