Globuli - Roman curd balls

from Latin "globulus - balls"  is a Roman sweet dessert that was offered as a dessert with honey and poppy seeds. It is a mixture of curd and semolina, which is similar to today's doughnut without filling. The recipe comes from a tradition of Cato the Elder

Globos sic facito. Caseum eum alica ad eundem modum misceto.
Inde quantos voles facere facito. In ahenum caldum unguen indito.
Singulos aut binos coquito versatoque crebro duabus rudibus, coctos eximito,
eos melle unguito, papaver infriato, ita ponito.

Globi do so:

  • Mix curd and cereal groats equally.
  • Make it into as many [globi] as you want.
  • Put lard in a hot copper vessel.
  • Bake one or two out and turn them often with two wooden spoons,the baked ones take out, wet them with honey, sprinkle them with poppy seeds, apply them like this.

M. Porcius Cato Censorius, de agri cultura 79,1
