Lady Cecilia de Cambrige asked:
<<<     I found this recipe in An Anonymous Andalusian Cookbook of the
Thirteenth Century.  Has anyone experimented with it?  (I'm currently
collecting medicinal foods from the 12th-14th centuries.) >>>

Are you considering writing a paper or A&S documentation on these  
medicinal foods you are collecting? If so, I'd love to have it for  
the Florilegium.

In the meantime, I've just added this file to the FOOD section of the  
Florilegium. It is mostly a list of individual ingredients and how  
they were used medicinally in period, but perhaps some of the  
comments or the bibliography might be of use in your research.
