What size hookah should I consider?

Shisha smoking has long been a social group activity and is something to consider when choosing your hookah. Any size hookah can be used by an individual smoker, but the size and weight of a large hookah, makes it more convenient for large groups or a hookah party. Large Hookahs (28 to 35 inches) are generally constructed with wider tubing rather than smaller hookahs to keep the hookah in proportion and  are better to support larger groups. Medium Hookahs (21 to 27 inches) can support groups of three to five people and are wonderful for solo smoking. Small Hookahs (20 inches and smaller) are best suited for solo smoking or groups of three or less. The compact size of small hookahs makes them easy to store or carry along. At Pars Market in Columbia,Maryland you can find all the supplies needed for your hookah and many more that would surprise you how much Hookah, Shisha selection we stock in our store!

 How many hoses?

The number of hoses to have on your hookah comes down to a matter of personal choice. As long as the coal is kept hot and the water pipe is kept tight, there is no difference in the quality of smoking from a one-hose hookah or a four-hose hookah but one smokes at a time. All of our multi-hose hookahs come with complete with hose caps and rubber stem plugs so that extra hose connections that are not in use can be sealed off.

How often should I clean my hookah?

The water in the glass vase should be emptied after every smoking session. Remember that the water in the glass vase acts as the filter for the smoke, so we recommend that you wash out the glass vase after every use. Clean the metal stem with the cleaning brush and very carefully funnel clear hot water through the hose on a regular basis. Never use soap to clean your hookah, as it may contaminate the taste of the smoke. Both the metal stem and the hookah hose should be completely dry before smoking with them again.

The smoke is too harsh, what am I doing wrong?

This could be a number of reasons. You may have too much coal on your bowl and you may have burned your shisha. If you remove some of the coal and the smoke is still too harsh then you have indeed burned your shisha and will have to re-pack a new bowl. Also be sure to change the water in your hookah after each session to keep your smoke tasting fresh.

I’m not getting enough smoke, what am I doing wrong?

Most likely, the reason you are not getting enough smoke is because your hookah is not air tight or enough water. Double check the connections between the metal shaft / glass base, metal shaft / hose, and metal shaft / clay bowl. If you are still not getting enough smoke, it might be because you don’t have enough coal on your bowl or that your bowl is clogged with shisha. Make sure not to make the wholes too big on the aluminum foil on your bowl. Also, make sure you are not packing too much flavor. You don’t have to pack it too  tightly as this will affect the amount of smoke. Make sure water does not come threw the hose, just enough to make bubbles in the hookah.  Any problems, Please Contact us at Pars Market or bring it in.

I love Hookah and I love smoking it so much….more I talk about hookah I still feel I have a lot more to say out! Let’s talk more and enjoy talking about it as well as smoking Hookah with friends and family!

Beautiful Double Hose Hookah at Pars Market

The Wonder of The Hookah

A Hookah is a water pipe that is used mainly by Middle Eastern countries for smoking tobacco, mainly flavored tobacco, such as Shisha. Traditional hookahs are elaborately decorated with gold or brass and often sport ornate carvings and designs. They are traditionally made from glass but can also be made from plastic or even. They have a long stem with a large Bowl at the top where the tobacco is placed.

From the stem are several long hoses that enable several people to enjoy the hookah at once. Water is placed in the stem and, when the bowl of tobacco is lit, the smoke is then filtered through the water and into the lungs of each person inhaling from each hose.

The practice of using hookahs is very popular in countries like Iran and other Arab countries but it is also popular in European countries, as well, and even the United States.

Large selection of Gaz at Pars Market Columbia Maryland 21045

 

Iranian Gaz

Iranian gaz is a Persian nougat, a traditional candy which originated in the Esfahan city of Central Iran that has derived its name from a native desert plant in the Zagros mountain range called gaz – angebin (sap of angebin) of the Tamarisk family. The sap of this plant which is milky and sweet, is annually collected and blended with other ingredients such as almond kernels or pistachio, egg white and rose water to make gaz candy, which imparts an unique flavor to the confection preserving its uniqueness when compared to the similar European nougats. Traditionally, the Iranian gaz is made in the Middle Eastern and Mediterranean households, where it enjoys the status of being a staple sweet.

Ingredients Used and Popular Methods of Preparation of Gaz Candy

 

In Esfahan, as per the old tradition, the sweet milky juice is extracted from the stems of the plant collected from the mountains, which are brought downhill to the towns and stored inside copper vessels. A raw mixture is made with the other ingredients like rosewater, almond or pistachio kernels, egg white and this milk which is beaten to a desired consistency over heat and finally, given candy shapes by hand. The handmade, old fashioned Iranian gaz nougats are individually shaped round which typically have a diameter of 2 to 3 inches with half an inch of thickness. For making the modern Iranian gaz, aluminum foil is sprayed with nonstick cooking spray, over which, a hard mixture made by combining egg whites, corn syrup, pistachios, salt, sugar and water over heat, is layered smoothly, refrigerated and finally, brought out when set and cut into squares.

 Storing, Serving and Eating Gaz Candy

Traditionally, the Iranian gaz is eaten as an anytime snack, although it may also be served formally at dinner accompanied by hot tea. This Iranian sweet is also a popular entrée during the festive occasions, during when many confectioneries sell these nougats wrapped in gift boxes, as they make for ideal presents for relatives. 

 

Ashrafi Gaz in Gift wrap at Pars Market

 

 

The Iranian gaz candies are not wrapped individually; instead, all the nougat slices are packed in a single box with flour dusting, so as to keep the sweets from gluing to one another. Generally, these confections are stored in wooden boxes, although in some modern households or stores, metal, cardboard or plastic boxes are also used. Often, the Iranian gaz may be sold in larger sizes, which are cut into bite sized pieces just before serving or eating.

Sumac on Haft sin and Nowrouz Table

The Haft Sin items are sabzeh (wheat or lentil sprouts representing rebirth), samanu (creamy pudding made from wheat germ regarded as holy and symbolizes affluence), seeb (apple symbolizing health and beauty), senjid (dried fruit of lotus tree stands for love), sir (garlic regarded as medicinal and represents health), somagh (sumac berries signifying the color of the sun and the victory of good over evil) and serkeh (vinegar representing old age and patience). Apart from these foods, there are other items that are placed on the traditional table.

Sumac at Pars Market in Jar

The word sumac traces its etymology from Old French sumac (13th century), from Medieval Latin sumach, from Arabic summāq (سماق), from Syriac summāq (ܣܘܡܩ)- meaning “red”.

Sumac has a tart flavor that is very nice sprinkled on fish, chicken, over salad dressings, rice pilaf, or over raw onions. Try substituting in any dish on which you might squeeze fresh lemon juice. If you enjoy hummus, try topping it with a sprinkling of sumac. It’s delightful!
Sumac is considered essential for cooking in much of the Middle East; it served as the tart, acidic element in cooking prior to the introduction of lemons by the Romans. Sumac has a very nice, fruity-tart flavor which is not quite as overpowering as lemon. In addition to their very pleasant flavor, flakes from the berry are a lovely, deep red color which makes a very attractive garnish. 

at Pars Market we carry all your needs for Nowrouz including Sumac! We sell them in Different sizes, In jar and or in the Package, Sumac is available at Pars Market specially for Nowrouz and year round!
