Electuary (Juwârish) of Mint. Take a ratl of mint, pound it and press out its juice, add a ratl of sugar and a quarter of an ûqiya of mastic and make an electuary. Its benefits: it cuts phlegmatic vomiting, excites the appetite, heats the stomach, and if taken before eating, constipates the intestines; it is useful.
