Biblical Flavors – Sorghum

A Bit of History
The sorghum grain was prominent in ancient Egypt; hence some scholars believe it was the “millet” mentioned in the Bible. Today, sorghum is grown in virtually ever continent in the world and used as a cereal grain, sweetener, and stalk used for brooms.
“Take thou also unto thee wheat, and barley, and beans, and lentils, and millet, and spelt, and put them in one vessel, and make thee bread thereof, according to the number of the days that thou shalt lie upon thy side, three hundred and ninety days shalt thou eat thereof.” Ezekiel 4:9-17
