Eating habits in ancient Greece. Tip-6: Spices

Spices were the standard ingredient in every ancient Greek cuisine. Greeks used them to make their food spicier. The most common were salt, oregano, vinegar, mint, peppermint, fennel, thyme, sesame seeds, raisins, capers, cardamom, fig leaves, cumin, and molasses. The most wanted spice was the black paper which was imported from Persia.
