Excerpt from The Story of Dried Fruits The knowledge of sun-preserved fruits is very old - so old none may know its beginning. It is recorded in history that King David of Israel accepted raisins as payment of taxes. In 430 B. C. a Babylonian mortgage, the earliest known document of its kind, called for the return of principal and interest in dried fruits. Peaches are mentioned in the writings of Confucius Through the ages the word comes down that these fruits, which through the agency of a benificent sun were made available through all the year, from harvest time to harvest time, were always considered a delicacy. As populations shifted and spread from out of the sunny plains of the Adriatic countries, where most of these fruits had their beginnings, so far as it is recorded in history, the vines and trees from which they came were transplanted. Those to whom they were new eagerly accepted them and spread their popularity. The ancients ate of these fruits because they were good to eat and pleased their palates, and to a great extent we do likewise, although with our larger knowledge and understanding of dietetic values we are pleased to know that they offer a most pleasant method of obtaining easily assimilated energy. Always the center of the dried fruit industry has shifted westward until on the shores of the Pacific it has reached its highest development in the southern part of California. Today, California fruits, preserved in the health-giving rays of the sun, are known the world over. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
