The Greek physician
Hippocrates made many mentions of CUMIN for its beneficial medical
properties. But in medieval Europe this Indian spice was most popular as
the condiment of choice above all others.
To the west along the Silk Route the traders’ caravans brought none so odd
as the gnarled knotty tubers of the GINGER root. Thick twisted
sticks that were benign until cut or broken apart when the sharp biting
fumes would explode in the air. For the Medieval populace thin scrapings
were much used to spice the bland diet of the day.
From his voyage of adventure in 1498 Vasco de Gama returned to Lisbon with
news of the sea route to India. His ship was treasured with gold and
silks, spices and trinkets from the far off continent. Also on board he
had a small cargo of timbers that when sanded would exude an exotically
eastern heady perfume. This “sanders wood” as it would become known to
the London merchants of the day gave way to the name SANDALWOOD for
both the timber and luxuriant oil that is obtained from the tree.
