Amplummus is a creamy apple custard. The egg yolks and saffron give it a pretty yellow color and the cinnamon and sugar keep it from being bland. In some other books there are versions of this dish described as a “sick food”. I can imagine using the sweet taste of apples and sugar to deliver the high protien of the eggs, the calories of the cream and the warming of the cinnamon to a patient without them making a fuss.
