quote:Originally posted by amerikanjunkie Azure.... Something about noahs ark,
i hate being a culture embassador but this what i know, when Noah was in the Sea with all those animals it's not hard to guess there should be lots of different foodstuff.
a few of each food has left, this was through the spring and sea was calmed down as well, so to celebrate this nearly all the nuts that you may think of, i have to go now.. will finish at work
ok.. ok.. i'm coming.
this is a desert. so there were lots of nuts left and sugar in the pantry. what noah did was genius, knowing that few nuts will not do any good to anyone, he mixed them all in one big cauldron with sugar.
so to celebrate this surviving in anotolia this became a tradition of cooking that desert and give it to your neighbours, in the beginning of spring. oh, some archilogist found reminesences of noah's ark in the mount ararat, in the east of turkey.
