Take it now from the mortar and spread it nicely out on a clean board iij fingers' breadth thick. Push through a skewer and take care that it doesn't fall off. Put it on a clean skillet on the fire and let it fry. Or on a broadspit and pour over it while it is frying olive oil. When it is fried serve it up and sprinkle it with cinnamon.
