Conclusion Author Bio Publisher Introduction The moment you hear the word “saffron”, your immediate reaction is the vision of an exotic, valuable and very expensive spice. You may also think of a golden – orangeish color. The term saffron comes from the Persian term Zaferan for orange gold. That is because the Persians were supposed to be the first of the culinary gourmets to use saffron in cooking. They already knew all about the healing qualities of this precious spice and used it extensively in medicine. But when they found out that just a couple of stigmas of the precious crocus was able to give their dishes a lovely tint, aroma, and look, saffron came into popular usage. It is also said that saffron was used extensively in China, more than 2000 years ago, where it was used in herbal medicine. A saffron plant had up to four flowers. Each of them had three Crimson and bright stigmas. These stigmas are the most precious providers of saffron in their dried form. In ancient Greece, which is also a contender for “we discovered saffron first,” the people of Minoan and Cretan origin painted beautiful paintings of saffron collectors on their walls. Santorini excavations, going back to the Bronze Age, – more than 5000 years ago have extremely well defined frescoes of saffron collectors , wearing their native garb. This plant, belongs to the crocus family, and is called Crocus Sativus. It is supposed to be a native of Southwest Asia, from where it slowly and steadily spread to North America, North Africa, and Europe. As time went by, and people began to use new sea routes to discover brave brand-new worlds, the demand for more and more saffron began to grow, especially in ancient civilizations where cuisine and the standard of living was steeped in luxury. This is why the conquering Romans who could not do without crocus, make sure that wherever they went, they did take some crocus bulbs and corms along with them. Since those long gone days, this is considered to be one of the most expensive and exotic of spices known to mankind.

Since ancient times, pomegranates have been an integral part of ancient medicine and natural remedies. Pomegranates have been called the Poor man’s doctor, because since ancient times, man has been curing himself with spices, fruits, herbs and nuts. That is why people of the 21st century are coming back to nature and looking for natural remedies, which are going to cure them of diseases and ailments. Chemical-based drugs may heal you very well on a short-term basis, but they are going to have an everlasting long-term effect on your body. On the other hand, fruits and vegetables as well as herbs are going to heal your body naturally, while making sure that you do not suffer from any sort of side effects. This is the reason why the magic series are going to tell you all about the wonderful medical and beauty enhancing benefits of different herbs, spices, fruit, vegetables and flowers. Ancient medical treatises in Egypt and Persia consider pomegranates to be a powerhouse of good health. That is because they thought that this fruit could cure people of many ills. The Latin name for pomegranate is Punica granatum. One wonders whether the Romans fought the Punic wars with Carthage, to rule over lands where they could get pomegranates, because after all, everybody knows that the Roman emperors ransomed Kings for black pepper, exotic fruit and other spices. According to ancient treatises, the pomegranate had the power to purify your blood, which would mean that your skin would not suffer from any sort of skin ailments, including pimples or boils. Also, when I was talking about pomegranates, with an ancient naturopath, he told me that sages of ancient time used to use pomegranate seeds to enhance brain power and vision, get rid of odema, renew the mineral resources needed for keeping our body working properly and reduce urinary inconsistency. In fact, he handed me some pomegranate seeds, mixed up with rock salt, to make me feel hungry. [I had lost my appetite, because of illness and also due to stress.] He said that that activated the stomach and made it do its job properly and naturally. It worked. So if you have a continuous access to pomegranates, lucky, lucky you! The pomegranate peels are going to keep you beautiful. The pomegranate seeds’ juice is going to keep you healthy, both externally and internally.

It is a widespread prejudice of modern, scientific society that "magic" is merely a ludicrous amalgam of recipes and methods derived from primitive and erroneous notions about nature. Eros and Magic in the Renaissance challenges this view, providing an in-depth scholarly explanation of the workings of magic and showing that magic continues to exist in an altered form even today. Renaissance magic, according to Ioan Couliano, was a scientifically plausible attempt to manipulate individuals and groups based on a knowledge of motivations, particularly erotic motivations. Its key principle was that everyone (and in a sense everything) could be influenced by appeal to sexual desire. In addition, the magician relied on a profound knowledge of the art of memory to manipulate the imaginations of his subjects. In these respects, Couliano suggests, magic is the precursor of the modern psychological and sociological sciences, and the magician is the distant ancestor of the psychoanalyst and the advertising and publicity agent. In the course of his study, Couliano examines in detail the ideas of such writers as Giordano Bruno, Marsilio Ficino, and Pico della Mirandola and illuminates many aspects of Renaissance culture, including heresy, medicine, astrology, alchemy, courtly love, the influence of classical mythology, and even the role of fashion in clothing. Just as science gives the present age its ruling myth, so magic gave a ruling myth to the Renaissance. Because magic relied upon the use of images, and images were repressed and banned in the Reformation and subsequent history, magic was replaced by exact science and modern technology and eventually forgotten. Couliano's remarkable scholarship helps us to recover much of its original significance and will interest a wide audience in the humanities and social sciences.

This book, the result of a lifetime of listening and 30 plus years of research, focuses on the magic that is jazz, particularly the element of Tricksterism in the music. In some sense, anyone who is proficient at jazz has some element of Tricksterism, the ability to make something out of anything and to transform it in the process. The truly great musicians are Tricksters. I have concentrated on Charlie Parker, Louis Armstrong, and Dizzy Gillespie because these great musicians most displayed the genius and humor that the African Trickster is reputed to have. Each of these musicians took the material available to them, usually the pop songs of their day, and refashioned them into something better than they found. It is a kind of magic or alchemy. This sleight of hand is filled with surprises that cause physical reactions, often gasps, in their audiences. In a kind of reversal of expectations, the more the audience knows, the more it is surprised. I have listened to Louis Armstrong for about sixty years and, at least once in every performance, I am surprised. The more I listen to Armstrong, Parker or Gillespie, the more I am astounded by what they have done. I did not write about Sonny Rollins here, an oversight, but at 80 years-old-plus, Sonny amazes me at every performance I am lucky enough to see. These magician-Tricksters transform all they touch and turn even dross to gold. This book is a step toward understanding how they do it.

This book introduces to you the magic of almonds. The almond- Prunus Amygdalus-has long been known through history as one of the most popular and healthy Dry fruits available to mankind.

The Magic of Marigolds - Marigolds for Health and Beauty Table of Contents Introduction Use of Marigolds In Herbal Lore And Tradition Planting Marigolds in Your Garden Beauty Products Made from Marigolds and Tips How to Make Marigold Skincare Cream Marigolds in Cooking Appendix Conclusion Introduction I was under the impression that the beautiful Marigold was just an ornamental flower looking great in my garden, until I found out that it was an herbaceous perennial, used in herbal medicines, natural remedies, and also in beauty recipes. So, this book is going to tell you all about the magic of marigolds, how to see them grow and flourish in your garden, and also use them in cookery, as well as in beauty recipes. In Asia, marigolds are an integral part of social life. Every auspicious ceremony needs garlands of marigolds and jasmines to adorn the houses, photographs of the gods, goddesses, and guests who have been invited to bless the ceremony with their presence. Marigolds are originally natives of North India, Africa, and Mexico. From here, they were taken all over the civilized world by traders. So that means you are going to see Calendula officinalis, otherwise known as garden Marigold , common Marigold and even pot Marigold , growing all in warm and temperate regions all over the globe. But a Mexican priest told me that ancient legend says the name Marigold is supposed to be in praise of the Virgin Mary – “Mary’s Gold”. Also, he told me that this flower named cempasúchil in Mexico was considered to be the sacred flower of the dead, and had to be offered during the celebration of The Day of the Dead, when people prayed to their departed near and dear ones. In India, this flower is called Satvarga- just like the Sun. Marigolds may bloom throughout the year, if the conditions are favorable, and the sun is warm and shining, so naturally this flower is one of the most preferred choices to use in happy celebrations, when you want to depict and praise light and sunshine. Do you know that the ancient Greeks, Romans, Egyptians and Indians used Marigold flowers as a natural dye? They also colored foods with Marigold flowers to give the dish a golden yellow tint, especially when they did not have turmeric or saffron around. So if you want to nibble Marigolds, remember that only Pot Marigold Species T. tenuifolia florets are edible. Do not use Marigold leaves in any culinary masterpiece.

The Magic of Yogurt For Cooking and Beauty Table of Contents Introduction Shopping for Yogurt? Investing in a Yogurt Maker How to Make the Perfect Yogurt. How to Prevent the Yogurt from Getting Watery? Yogurt in Cuisine Yogurt – cucumber soup – Tarator Raita- Mishti doi (literally sweet yogurt ) Yogurt As Tenderizer Chicken In Yogurt Making Whey at Home Buttermilk or Lassi How Do You Make Traditional Buttermilk? Yogurt for Beauty Yogurt As a Hair Conditioner. Curing Dandruff Yogurt As a Facemask. Rosewater for Beauty How To Make Rose Water Conclusion Author Bio Introduction Nobody really knows who first discovered yogurt. Butter is supposed to have been discovered millenniums ago, when camel’s milk was placed in animal skin hides while being transported from one place to another by Arab or Turkish nomads. The ambulatory movement of the camel walking across the desert seem to have a churning effect on the hides, and in the evening, when the milk was taken out of the sack, two new products were discovered. Butter and buttermilk. This possibly apocryphal serendipity is on par with the supposed discovery of wine. Millenniums ago, a Greek slave was suffering from toothache, and that was so painful that she found an earthenware pitcher full of fermenting grape juice left by some other careless slave. All those bubbles made her think that it was poison, and she would rather drink that, than suffer the pain of a toothache. So she did drink of the juice of the grape and fell asleep. And the miracle of wine was discovered to gladden the hearts of generations. No wonder the Greeks had a God Bacchus – also known as Dionysus and the Roman equivalent Liber to whom you liberally paid libations, before you drank wine – for wine. But nobody has told us how yogurt was discovered and by whom. But in ancient Indian medicine texts, the mixture of honey with yogurt eaten every day is considered to be the food of the gods to keep you everlastingly healthy. Along with yogurt, the side products of bacterially fermented milk included buttermilk and butter. Every house proud woman made sure that she kept some yogurt back from yesterday’s batch to prepare today’s batch of yogurt. These cultures have enzymes and bacteria, which are extremely beneficial for your digestive system. The enzymes produce lactic acid. Lactic acid is what is going to ferment the lukewarm milk. It is also what makes your yogurt sour if you leave it in a warm place after the yogurt has been made. So the moment you see the yogurt set, put it in a cool place.

That is because the symbolism of the rose has been passed down through the ages since Classical Times. The word “rose” is still used to express the color pink or red in Greek, French, Italian, Portuguese, Spanish and Romanian – the Romance languages. It is believed that this woody perennial originated in Asia, and there were 160 species, which grew in number, thanks to the Empress Josephine’s interest in collecting one example of all the existing roses from 1815 to 1830. It is thanks to her that the interest in hybridization of roses began to grow in France, and from there, it spread to the rest of Europe. As hybridization of roses is an easy process, those 160 species grew up into 6000 species of roses of cultivars and hybrids. Prevost and Pepinieriste wrote down 880 names of different rose species in their Rose catalog. But other rose species, which were native to northwest Africa and North America were already being in use for medical purposes, cooking purposes, beautification purposes, and also as symbols, since ancient and medieval times. The idea of My Love Is like a Red Red Rose has been en vogue for centuries. Why is this so, because a rose is normally accompanied with “thorns” which were a defensive protective epidermal outgrowths. The original roses or creepers, and they managed to cling to plants with the help of these thorns. The idea of Roses for love have come down the millenniums as from the classical times when the rose was associated and identified with Venus – Aphrodite.

Desi ghee Author Bio Introduction Playing gooseberry may be an aphorism to describe an unwanted person, who is not needed in a self-contained and self absorbed group of two, but in reality, the common gooseberry is one of the most precious, wanted and valuable of natural plants. Gooseberry shrubs can be found all over the world, where the climate has plenty of sun, and the humidity content in the air is high. Native American gooseberries are larger than their Asian counterparts. Not only is this an excellent medicinal plant, but it is also well-known for its beautifying qualities. In fact, the ancient sages in the East. Make sure that they had plenty of gooseberries, in their daily diet, because they considered this fruit to be the reason for their longevity, everlasting good health, and youthful looks. The ancients called this the gift of the gods, and thought that the gods had given the gooseberry to man because even though they could not give him immortality, they could give him longevity in the shape of gooseberries. That is because Indian myth says that this plant grew from a few drops of nectar, dropping on the earth by the gods taking the treasures of the sea, to the heavens. These treasures were obtained by churning the seas by the gods and the demons. Out of them, the nectar of immortality was one. Gooseberries, also known as Emblica officianalis have long been a religious, and political symbol in India and China.This is the reason why, in ancient Indian history, myth and religious tradition, giving a gooseberry to somebody who you honored and revered was considered to be the prerogative of Kings. The Hindus worship the gooseberry tree, because they consider Lord Vishnu to live in this plant. Living in South India as a child, I consider myself to have been brought upon gooseberries, because that was what we used to gnaw at school, and best friends used to share their “nellikas” among themselves. Hiding your own supply of gooseberries was considered the height of selfishness and treachery among friends. These gooseberries were of course “purloined” from the gooseberry trees, growing in particularly targeted gardens. It is a wonder how we managed to digest those raw gooseberries, along with raw guavas. And all of us had the lyrics of a very popular song of the time down pat, of which the chorus was – Nellikai amma illi baa [lit – gooseberry lady, come here…] We enjoyed the extremely sour taste of gooseberries, when we did not have tamarinds around. And that is why, whenever we had some time to spare, we would be hitting the branches of the deciduous gooseberry tree with a long stick in order to make the gooseberries fall.

Other Common Uses of Lemons Traditional Lemon Pickles Traditional Lemon Sherbet Traditional Bleaching Cream Lemon cleaner Easy Tips Conclusion Author's bio Introduction Lemon trees are very pretty and the lemon’s flower is sweet/but the fruit of the lemon is impossible to eat./¬ This song was very popular in the 60s and 70s, but the songwriter was wrong. Just not eating a lemon, because it is sour in taste, is going to prevent you from experiencing all the natural benefits of this versatile citrus fruit. Lemons are considered to have originated in Asia, – China and Burma – from where they managed to conquer the world. Christopher Columbus brought lemon seeds back to Europe, from his travels. It thus began to be cultivated in Europe, where before it was a rarity. It was only in the 1740s, that people in the West began to understand that there was some power in the lemons, which prevented sailors from suffering from scurvy and beriberi. They had not heard of vitamins C at that time of course, but sailing tradition spread the word through word of mouth that whenever sailors reached some islands, they had to eat of the fruit and the grasses there. That would prevent their gums from bleeding, pain in the muscles and in the bones and make them feel healthier. These fruits were citrus fruits, including lemons. This cause and effect apparent result made European Navies make it a rule that every ship sailing out of harbor should have a plentiful supply of lemons, green grasses and other citrus fruits to feed to the sailors and the officers, during the voyage. However, lemons have been known since 10 A.D. in Persia, where they were used for beautifying, culinary and medical purposes. Also, their gardens used to have lemon trees, and plenty of their traditional poetry described the lemon flower along with pomegranate flowers as a symbol of beauty and grace. The characteristic sourness of the lemon, is due to the citric acid content in it. That is why lemon juice, as well as its rind and pulp, is used in culinary preparations, all over the world. The whole of the lemon fruit can be used, with the rind ground to add a flavor to special baked dishes. Lemon juice or even the peel of the dried lemon can be used for preparing beauty products and also in natural herbal remedies.

Sprouted Lentil Veggie Burger Orange Turmeric Cake Marinated Grilled Prawns Savory Chickpeas Turmeric to Heal You. Tummy Parasites? Suffering from anemia? Turmeric for Curing Wounds Turmeric Antiseptic Turmeric and Onions team up against Colon Cancer Conclusion Introduction There is an ancient and amusing saying, very prevalent in the East," Mr. Rat found a rhizome of turmeric; he immediately opened up a grocers/herbalist shop!" This may be used to talk about a dreaming, ambitious person, who is trying to extend his wings beyond his capacities, but on the other hand, it talks all about the power of turmeric. As a grocer, Mr. Rat could not only sell turmeric as a condiment and as a spice, for cooking purposes, but he also had easy access to the cure-all for all ailments – turmeric! Scientific research in the West, has found out that turmeric, has antibiotic and germicidal qualities, but that was already known in the ancient alternative medicine of the Orient and of the East. It had to be a necessary part of the medical arsenal of every wise woman out there, in ancient times, because if she did not have easy access to the medicine man or to a physician, she just had to resort to plain old turmeric. So her family's cough and cold prevalent chest infections, cuts, wounds, and even skin problems in her teenage kids, with those pimples and skin blemishes could be cured by turmeric. The idea that turmeric is used just as a spice, giving flavor and a golden color to cuisine, is slowly and steadily disappearing from the Western mind. Instead, they are getting to know more about its curative properties, thanks to research telling them about Curcumin – a natural product present in turmeric, which keeps you safe, healthy, and also prevents cancer. Chinese, Greek, Egyptian, Indian, and Oriental medicine knew all about the value of this rhizome since ancient times. This plant belongs to the same family as the equally important curative Herb – ginger. The herb that you are going to get in the market, is going to be a golden yellow powder, made up of grinding dry rhizomes in a heavy-duty grinder. I remember one of the persuasive salesman, trying to persuade my father to buy some of his hundred percent pure, freshly ground in his own mill turmeric powder, packaged in his own shop. My father looked at him and told him, "last time I bought some of this hundred percent pure, freshly packaged powder from the market, I put a teaspoon full of it in the water, and I have got enough of saffron dye mixed in it to dye a turban!" That shut the sales man up, because that is when guilty conscience works. Yes it is true; the powder that you are going to get in the market today is possibly definitely not pure, that is why it is necessary for you to use a grinder to grind the rhizomes. This book is going to tell you all about the magic of turmeric, and you are going to be surprised to know that you knew so less about this amazing herb/spice. Not only is it being used extensively to cure and prevent life-threatening diseases, but it can help save you a lot of headaches and possible financial expenditure, related to your health in the future.

This is salt, without which any salty dish is going to lose its savor and flavor. Imagine food without salt! Salt was held to be so precious in ancient times, that Roman soldiers were given salt daily at night, as salary. The idea was that they were going to have enough of salt in which they could cook their evening meal, with ground corn and onions. This was the diet on which the Roman legions marched and conquered half of the world. More than 3000 years ago, salt was used as a coin to ransom Kings and conquered prisoners, along with spices, which were considered to be more precious than precious stones and gold. It is a historically known fact that Portuguese, German and British rulers of Africa asked the local chieftains to pay their taxes in ivory, local produce, and salt. That is the reason why, the idea of “he eats salt with his food,” was said to describe a rich man. Even as late as the 19th century, when the transport system had improved imports of salt to Africa, the fierce warriors in innermost Africa still demanded salt from and of their conquered prisoners. The average man did not have salt to eat, and that is why he flavored his food with aromatic leaves and other herbs gathered from the forests. It is also a historical fact that the British tried out the same idea of taxation on salt in India, and that immediately brought the whole of India United up in arms, in their fight for independence. Salt was the birthright of every poor person in India, and putting the tax on salt was almost as much a tyranny, as putting tax on something like say, water or the air one breathed. The whole of India joined in the fight for independence, because they did not want rulers, who wanted to tax the salt they ate in their food. The quit India movement thus gained more popularity and impetus. And that is one of the factors which may be British decide to quit India in 1947. Ancient medical treatises in Egypt and Persia considered salt to be necessary ingredient in making up nostrums and remedies to cure ills. Also, salt was used as a scrub, instead of soap or even sand, to remove dust and grime after a hard days work. In many religious ceremonies, salt was considered to be with the most pure of ingredients, and that is why it was offered to the gods. If you go to Russia, you are going to be welcomed with the bread and salt. This has a historical significance. The idea of eating one’s salt, and being loyal to one’s salt has come down through millenniums, as the way in which feudal lords managed to keep the loyalty of the people under them. The one who had betrayed his own salt was a traitor to whom nobody would give any welcome. The underlying significance was a soldier worked for a feudal lord. He was paid enough with which he could afford to buy precious salt for his food. Even today in the East, one takes the pinch of salt offered to him by a friend, or by an acquaintance, to acknowledge that his loyalty remains with the friend who has made him a brother of the salt.
