Mansaf

Families in Jordan inherited the art of making mansaf from mothers and grandmothers. Generation after generation, this distinctive dish has been passed down to this day so that we can enjoy its luxurious taste and ingredients.

 

The history of the Jordanian Mansaf dates back to the reign of King Mesha al-Moabib in 147 BC, the founder of the city of Karak and the unifier as stated in the history books, because he united the kingdom of Depol with the kingdom of Moab. King Mesha ordered that the entire kingdom of Moab cook meat with milk, and he who did not eat milk was considered with the enemies and not with his state.

 

Mansaf consists mainly of municipal meat cooked with jameed, a form of dried milk, known only in Jordan, Palestine and southern Syria, and the best is produced in the city of Karak in southern Jordan, which is the secret of the deliciousness of this meal for Jordanians, as well as lamb from local sheep Known in Jordan as baladi meat, and rice with a small grain, it is necessary to add ghee and decorate the meal with almonds, pine nuts and shrak bread.

The ancient Greeks were such a big fan of this dish that poets wrote about it, how it was made with ground wheat and olive oil, and how it was served with honey and village. Just like today!

 

the bread

 

Bread is one of the basic foods in the diet and its components are as simple as pancakes. The origin of bread goes back 30,000 years in areas such as Europe and Australia, where scientists found traces of starch on rocks that were used to grind plants and cooked on flat rocks over a fire. As for the proof of bread making, it dates back to 14,500 years in the north-eastern Jordan, and the method of preparing it developed more than 10,000 years ago, when man began to settle and transform from a hunter to a farmer.
