The History of Baklava

 Many groups claim Baklava as their own. However, a check of the history of baklava yields surprising results. It is widely believed that it is of Assyrian origin.
Around approximately the 8th century B.C., Assyrians baked thin layers of dough with nuts, poured honey over it, and enjoyed this sumptuous treat.

Turkish Delight at Pars Market

Turkish Delight is a flavored sweetmeat or a candy, prepared from starch and sugar, filled with dry fruits, honey or nuts. It has a sticky texture and very often Arabic gum is used as a binder. The Turkish Delights come in cubes with powdered sugar sprinkled on them.

Although Turkish Delights may contain many exotic fillings, the staid and simple rosewater is still the most preferred. It is this rosewater, which gives the candy its trademark blushing pink color. It can be had as an accompaniment to tea or coffee or it can be enjoyed all by itself too. at Pars Market we sell many flavors of Turkish Delight like with Pistachio, Hazelnut, Rose, Plain, Lemon, Mint, Coconut, Orange, Mix Fruits and many more….

Nuts & Dried Fruits

The ancients ascribed amazing aphrodisiac powers to nuts and dried fruit, particularly pine nuts, walnuts, almonds and figs. The Roman poet Ovid, whose first work, Amores, established him as an expert on seduction, included pine nuts on his list of love potions.
While there is no scientific proof that validates the passionate side of this theory, science does support the belief that nuts and dried fruit have many benefits — rich in fiber, phyto-nutrients and antioxidants such as Vitamin E and selenium.  Nuts are also high in protein, plant sterols and fat — but mostly mono-unsaturated and polyunsaturated fats, which have all been shown to lower LDL cholesterol.
Pars Market has searched the world over to bring you the best nuts and dried fruit: cashews and pine nuts from China; almonds, walnuts and raisins from California; dates from Jordan; and figs and apricots from Turkey; and many more that line the shelves of the market.
