Sample text

The juice of the roots is cooked with clarified butter (ghee), lemon juice, honey, long pepper (Piper langum), and milk to create an aphrodisiac that increases semen, increases mother’s milk, and tones the uterus. In a similar tradition, Muslims cook the roots (safed musli) in milk as a substitute for salep, the famous elixir made of orchid bulbs for increasing masculine prowess and for “thickening and increasing semen” (de Vries 1989, 303). And in China, asparagus (known for over five thousand years by the name Tien men Tong) is used as a diuretic and expectorant.

In eastern Europe icons are decorated with feathery asparagus fronds (illustration by Molly Conner-Ogorzaly, from B. B. Simpson and M. Conner-Ogorzaly, Economic Botany, 1986, 236) Much of the aura of asparagus concerns its reputation as a rejuvenating aphrodisiac. Indeed, backing this description is the belief that the fast-growing, phallic shoots will increase sexual desire and potency. The ancient Greeks ascribed asparagus to the goddess of love, Aphrodite. The Boeotians made wreaths for brides out of asparagus fronds.

Each body part turned into an edible plant. The Iroquois tell a similar tale. Three divine maidens turned into corn, beans, and pumpkins after they fell from the heavens onto the earth. Similar concepts were held by Neolithic Europeans, who saw in their staple crops the sacrifice of the children of the Earth Goddess. At its core even Christianity contains the ancient belief of the sacrifice of the solar divinity and his resurrection into bread and wine. Illustration 5. Gardener on an old woodcarving For full-fledged materialists, tales such as these are nothing but superstitious nonsense.
