orange paste

Orange Paste. Take the peel of red oranges, after steeping them in water, and cut them like fingers. Take a weight of one ratl and add to it three ratls of honey cleaned of its foam, until it takes the form of a paste. Eat of it like a nut at meals. Its benefits: it digests foods, dissolves phlegm, increases the urine, and aids in cold poisons; in this it is admirable.
