Marzipan made from sugar. Do it like this. Put the tragacanth into rose water for three days, crush some sugar in a mortar, then put the tragacanth into a cloth and squeeze it, then put it into a mortar, but don't crush it too hard, stretch it with a rolling pin. Then make some waffles, and pour this onto the waffles.
