A Bit of History
The Biblical term for honey, “dvash”, usually referred to a thick grape, fig or date syrup rather than honey from bees. Other fruits and berries were also widely used for syrups, such as the carob. The carob tree is prized throughout Israel, valued for its shade as well as the pods. The pods are often considered St. John’s Bread, which St. John the Baptist ate for survival in the wilderness.
