What Did The Israelites Eat?
I vaguely remember from the Old Testament that the Israelites on their wanderings, I think, were constrained by their god to throw out their bread at the end of each week. Eat unleaved bread and start again building up a 'leavened' bread from wild yeasts, presumably, during the next week, only to have to throw that out again and start afresh.
Does anyone know if that's right?
And if it is then what kind of bread would they have been making? Would there be an appreciable difference in leavening in the course of one week?
Would there be any health aspect to this constraint that we're aware of nowadays?
