Candy cornucopia

This festive candy platter combines a number of 13th-century Egyptian recipes: candy fingers, tamarind candy, almonds in honey (مَكْشُوفة, makshufa), as well as the mysterious ‘ill lady’ (sitt danif) and her pistachios in rose-water syrup and musk. [Kanz al-fawā’id, 1993, pp. 106, 107-8, 116, 138, Nos. 275, 279, 305, 371]
