Raisins on the #vine! Drying or dehydrating #fruits was one of the earliest forms of #preservation. The earliest recorded mention of dried fruits can be found in #Mesopotamian tablets dating to about 1700 BC. Ancient #Assyrians used #dates, date #juice evaporated into #syrup and #raisins as #sweeteners. They included dried fruits in their #breads for which they had more than 300 #recipes, from simple #barley #bread for the workers to very #elaborate, #spiced #cakes with #honey for the palaces and temples. #ancientfoods #buriedcheese #ancientcooking #ancientworldcooking #assyriancuisine #indigenousfood #chicago

Beer was known in many varieties in ancient #Assyria. Down to the time of #Hammurabi, #brewing seems to have been in the hands of #women, for this #craft was under the protection of #female #divinities. #Ninkasi, the #goddess of #beer, pictured here, is the first reference to beer in the #world. #Cheers!

When the first words out of your mouth are "kitma breeshe" you know your #habanero #sauce is deadly but #deliciously #hot! The #assyrian phrase literally translates to "ashes on my head" used to express surprise or shock! In #ancient times #ashes on head was a sign of sorrow or grief. Bottle should come with a warning! 😳#prototype #ancientcooking #ancientworldcooking #assyriankitchen #chicago #hotsauce #pomegranate #habanero
