$6.99

Traditional Turkish sweet believed to have therapeutic effects. Rich in spice. When the mother of Suleiman the Magnificent became very ill none of the doctors could not diagnose or treat her. Finally a doctor from city of Manisa made a special remedy for her out of this special paste, Mesir Majun and it has successfully treated the Sultan's mother. As a result the Sultan ordered to give this special spicy sweet paste to be freely given to the public one day every year which is usually towards the end of March. This tradition still lives on in Manisa.
