Ok, majoon is a potent jam which may be spread on crackers, used as a pastry
filling or eaten by the fingerful.
Toast bud in a dry skillet over low heat until golden brown. Be careful not
to scorch it. Pulverize toasted bud with dates, raisins or currants, ground
walnuts, nutmeg, anise seed, and ginger. Add honey. Cook the mixture with
1/2 cup water (more if needed) until the stuff is softened and you can blend
it together. While hot, add butter and stir for 5 minutes. Seal in a jar
and keep under refrigeration.
