The History Of Licorice
Licorice has a long and honorable history in the service of mankind. The earliest usage of Licorice was back in the first annals of recorded time. Licorice connoisseurs throughout history have included Pharaohs and Prophets. Generous supplies were discovered in King Tut's tomb, while Egyptian hieroglyphics record the use of Licorice in a popular beverage by men in the days when the Bible was still being written! Alexander the Great, the Scything armies, Roman Emperor Caesar, and even India's great prophet, Brahma, are on record endorsing the beneficial properties contained in Licorice. Warriors used it for its ability to quench thirst while on the march, while others (including Brahma and venerable Chinese Buddhist sages), recognized Licorice's valuable healing properties.Natural licorice can be effective medicine. For over 3,000 years, licorice root has been used as a remedy for peptic ulcers, sore throats and coughs in eastern and western medicine. Licorice root has been used since the third century BC to help dissipate coughs. But the most enduring quality of Licorice continues to be its potential for sweetness of flavor. Its botanical name is Glycyrrhiza , from the Greek meaning "sweet root." The taste of the licorice root is so distinctive that its sweetness is detectable in water even when diluted to one part licorice to 20,000 parts water!
