    In a land flowing with milk and honey, what kinds of food made up the ancient Jewish diet? What did people eat and drink in Roman Palestine? Susan Weingarten guides readers through a menu of the first millennium C.E. in her article "Biblical Archaeology 101: The Ancient Diet of Roman Palestine," published in the March/April 2019 issue of Biblical Archaeology Review. Although it is difficult to reconstruct the diet of the average person in Palestine during the Roman and Late Antique periods, Weingarten, as both a food historian and an archaeologist, is well equipped for the task. Using archaeological remains...

    Thanksgiving is a time when people don’t seem to want ‘new’ - they want ‘traditional’, the food they’ve always associated with the holiday. But it’s also an opportunity to slip in at least one new and different dish, to perhaps broaden your guests’ gustatory horizons – and give the cook a little diversity in the annual labors ;-) My first introduction to anything vaguely ‘Indian’ was this Hot Curried Fruit that my Aunt used to make for Thanksgiving or Christmas. It seems to be a somewhat traditional ‘thing’ in Virginia and parts South; and whenever I’ve made it for office...

    Politicians insisting that the latest Islamic jihad attack has nothing to do with Islam have become a familiar feature of the mainstream media landscape, but last Saturday, Boston Police Commissioner William B. Evans went them all one better. Speaking at the Islamic Society of Boston Cultural Center, Evans declared: We're all Muslims deep down. We all yearn for peace. Evans thus went farther than Barack Obama, John Kerry, David Cameron, and all the other Western politicians who insist that Islam is a religion of peace. For Evans, Islam is not just a religion of peace, but the religion of peace:...

    Charred grains of barley, millet and wheat deposited nearly 5,000 years ago at campsites in the high plains of Kazakhstan show that nomadic sheepherders played a surprisingly important role in the early spread of domesticated crops throughout a mountainous east-west corridor along the historic Silk Road... "Ancient wheat and broomcorn millet, recovered in nomadic campsites in Kazakhstan, show that prehistoric herders in Central Eurasia had incorporated both regional crops into their economy and rituals nearly 5,000 years ago, pushing back the chronology of interaction along the territory of the 'Silk Road' more than 2,000 years," Frachetti said... ...several strains of...
  • Woman Files For Divorce Over The Way Her Husband Eats Peas

    A woman in Kuwait found the way her husband ate his peas to be such a “shocking sight” that she filed for divorce after they had only been married for a week. The woman decided that her husband’s habit of eating peas with bread instead of a fork was an issue that they could not work out. That’s not the only recent divorce that has nothing to do with infidelity, abuse or communication issues. Another woman recently filed for divorce because of the way her husband squeezes toothpaste. “We are always arguing,” she reportedly told her lawyer. “I keep telling...

    My brother's wife wanted to know the history behind the southern tradition of the New Year's Day meal, and that started a search. I thought I'd share it with you. First, let me show you What hog jowl is, is, by J.A. Bolton Storyteller I hope your family will be enjoying the traditional meal of collards, black-eyed peas, hog jowl and cornbread for New Year’s Day. I thought in today’s column I would try to explain some of the folklore and customs behind the delicious meal we observe here in the south on New Year’s. I probably need to...
  • Plans for a Homemade Butter Bean Sheller

    I found these plans and I thought I might share them. Click on them for the source. Several years ago, Bud generously shared his detailed plans for a bean sheller. These plans draw in numerous visitors to Dave's Garden, and today we say "thank you!" to Bud for sharing them with us and so many gardeners around the world. If you've never had purple-stained fingers from hand-shelling purple-hull or black-eyed peas, a sheller might not seem like an important tool, but to those who harvest and hull a lot of field peas, you'll appreciate the convenience of a sheller....

    We've been eating our peas for 40+ years now. So many of us have been slaving at our jobs, mistreated by leftists who hate us, paying taxes and continuing to endure corruption from the President, members of Congress (BOTH parties), Federal officials across all agencies, State officials across all agencies and local officials. In the meantime, we drive by house after house occupied by those who are provided food, clothing, transportation, education and healthcare at our expense and fill their shopping carts with all of the fine foods we long to eat checking out in front of us at the...

    Today I had endured the personal torture of listening via the radio today, USA President Barack Obama’s most recent press conference on the national debt and the debt ceiling. While President Obama explains in detail the whys and hows of lead to the most recent breakdown in discussions on the national debt, President Obama talks like he is trying to be acting more like a parent who is telling his children to “eat their peas” rather than a President of a nation in deep economic struggles. What President Obama had said really BLOWS MY MIND! What he could have said...

    That's the reaction of the USA Dry Pea & Lentil Council to the president's urging of budget negotiators to make the difficult choices necessary to reach a "grand bargain" to raise the nation's debt limit. "It's not going to get easier, it's going to get harder. So we might as well do it now; pull off the Band-aid, eat our peas," Obama said at a White House news conference. A spokesman for the pea council said it wasn't interpreting the remarks in a negative context. "We take President Obama's comment on the need to 'eat our peas' as a reference...

    A terror of frozen peas, a fear of barns and a dread of kneecaps have emerged as some of Britain's most unusual phobias. Britain's weirdest phobias include a fear of peas and kneecaps. While spiders and heights are common sources of anxiety, many people's lives are blighted by phobias of seemingly innocuous objects. David Allison, a therapist based at Addenbrooke's hospital, in Cambridge, was filmed treating some of the worst sufferers in an ITV1 documentary to be shown next week. They included Sue Williams, 37, from Dudley in the West Midlands, who is so terrified of knees that she has...
  • Hopping John (Black-Eyed Peas On New Year's Day)

    Why do they call it Hopping John? On New Years Day east Tennesseans, and people here and there all over the South, eat black eyed peas and rice and call the mixture "Hopping John" (often written "Hoppin' John".) Over the years I have eaten hopping John with good friends in the kitchen, been served it from chafing dishes by well-off San Antonio ladies three sheets to the wind, and walked into a roadside restaurant in Maryland with a can of black eyed peas and asked to be indulged. Somebody at the table always asks "Why do they call it hopping...

    A teenager had to be rescued from an avalanche of peas after he forced open an industrial container in New Zealand. The 17-year-old, and two friends, used a lighter to burn plastic ties securing the shipping container in Ashburton port, reports But as the doors opened the teenager became stuck in a chest-high deluge of peas. Police and ambulance were called to the scene and were forced to use a forklift truck to free him. He was sentenced to 200 hours community work and to pay damages of £77, half the value of the peas.
