Raisins (Passules): Raisins are lubricants and softeners. Eating raisins or drinking the wine they are cooked in is a remedy for coughs caused by the common cold. They ease the stomach, reduce the heat of the liver and slake thirst. Galen says that figs and grapes are the best fruits because they are easy to digest.
