Se; lan, County Extension Agent- Home Economics. Briefly tracing the history of spices can help us understand their use today, and it's fun, she added. Spices have been used for centuries to extend man's food reserve. In 149$, Vasco de Gama sailed two ships 24,000 miles in a round trip from Portugal to India and brought back spices and other products worth 60 times the cost of the voyage. Spices are valuable because they help stretch inadequate food supplies. For that reason, during the Middle Ages a pound of ginger was worth a sheep, and a pound of mace, three sheep or half a cow. Pepper, most valuable as a preservative, was counted out in individual peppercorns — a sack of pepper was said to be worth a man's life. Some spices disguised the flavor of spoiled food, but others were preservatives that helped keep meat for a year or more without refrigeration. Cloves, for example, contain the chemical eugenol that inhibits the growth of bacteria. In fact, this a still used to preserve Virginia ham. When they had no spices, people often went hungry because they couldn't store enough food to carry them through the winter. to kjy. | rom*« from th word K!*d, nt« urij »,i«l u S.i»«n ftill t/r June H»l/itld owner of C'tumetk C'orntr & Kmplojct ' Brail.
