A documentary about the carob tree, the black gold of Crete
Nov 15, 2021
Kalispera Crete Traveler,
I hope you do enjoy a tranquil Sunday evening.
The amazing Lourakis family, from our superb Natalia's Houses, had the great pleasure to be part of this great documentary for the Carob fruit.
Carob has a long history of human consumption.
The Greek Theophrastus recorded in 4BC that his fellow Greeks called the carob the Egyptian Fig.
There is also evidence that Ancient Egyptians used carob.
Both the pods and seeds have been found in Egyptian Tombs. Further, the Romans ate the Carob pods when they were green and fresh for their natural sweetness.
Thus, Carob is no newly discovered food.
Thanks to Arte TV and Vincent Froehly now it has a voice.
Enjoy the video below.
