WHAT would you choose as a present for a very important person? In Bible times some spices were so precious and valuable that they constituted gifts fit for a king. Therefore two of the gift items that the astrologers offered to the “king of the Jews” were aromatic spices (Matthew 2:1,2 & 11).
For centuries, the Levant was the hub for trading between East and West. On the crossroad between empires travelling individuals would exchange many ideas, merchandise, ideologies and beliefs.
One of the most noteworthy items being traded were the spices that came from around the world. As Palestine was en route to and from the East and the West, many of the spices found their home there.
Even until today, spices are still something highly valued in Palestinian culture. From the delicious food that is prepared, to beauty products, religious services and burial ceremonies spices play a important role.
These aromatic, quality spices will bring a whole new dimension to your cooking and fill the air with the rich scent of spices from the East. Enjoy this box of spices that was made in Palestine with love.
