>> I guess the question is, was it ever used in the medieval period? I do not specifically see it mentioned in Perry, so I am just wondering if there is a term I am missing, or whether it was Turk-specific and they brought it with them into the lands they had conquered.

answers this. Beside the mention of it in Anon. Andalus, in Spain it was
used as a drink with chickpeas and chard and as a substitute for murri.
