A Sauce called Peach Blossom. Get peeled almonds and grind them with a crustless loaf of white bread, a little ginger and cinnamon, and distemper with verjuice, pomegranate juice and sandalwood, and strain everything; it will be good.

[Note that when you grind almonds, you should add a dose of fresh water or of rosewater so that they do not make oil.]
