Prehistoric Europeans spiced their cooking

5 posts in this topic

Europeans had a taste for spicy food at least 6,000 years ago, it seems.

Researchers found evidence for garlic mustard in the residues left on ancient pottery shards discovered in what is now Denmark and Germany.

The spice was found alongside fat residues from meat and fish.

I hope it was a fine English mustard, and not that namby-pamby French stuff!

I'd love to see the look on their faces if they find traces of ketchup. :whistle:

Amazing to see they were experimenting with flavours thousands of years ago....we haven't changed that much, I guess.
