Our Large Selection of Grape Leaves


Fiber

Use grape leaves to boost your intake of roughage. The leaves provide a rich source of fiber, 1.5 grams per cup. This means that, despite containing very few calories, grape leaves will help fill you up. Grape leaves' fiber content adds bulk to your food to help physically fill your stomach, and also helps slow digestion so that you get a gradual release of sugar into your bloodstream, instead of a blood sugar spike and crash that leaves you ravenous. A 1-cup serving of leaves provides about 7 percent of your fiber intake if you follow a 1,500-calorie diet, according to the Harvard School of Public Health, or 5 percent if you're on a 2,000-calorie diet.

Vitamins A and K

Grape leaves boost your intake of vitamins, and provide a particularly rich source of the fat-soluble vitamins A and K. Vitamin A helps your cells develop, guiding their development from non-functional immature cells into specialized cells that become a part of functional tissue. Your bones, skin, digestive tract and visual system all rely on vitamin A to function. Vitamin K helps control blood clotting. Healthy levels of the vitamin allow you to form blood clots after an injury, so that the clot can prevent blood flow out of the wound and limit your blood loss. A 1-cup serving of grape leaves contains 3,853 international units of vitamin A, your entire day's recommended intake of the nutrient, according to the Linus Pauling Institute. A cup of grape leaves also contains 15.2 micrograms of vitamin K, 17 percent of the recommended intake for women or 13 percent for men, according to the LPI.

Calcium and Iron

Grape leaves also provide you with calcium and iron, two essential minerals. Your body needs calcium to keep your bones and teeth strong, and also relies on the mineral for nerve and muscle function. Each cup of grape leaves contains 51 milligrams of calcium, about 5 percent of the calcium you need each day, according to the Linus Pauling Institute. The iron in grape leaves promotes healthy circulation -- the mineral helps your blood carry oxygen throughout your body. A 1-cup serving of the leaves provides 0.37 milligrams of iron -- 4 percent of the daily iron requirements for men, according to the Linus Pauling Institute, or 2 percent for women.

Cooking with Grape Leaves

Stuff your grape leaves with healthy ingredients to make nutrient-dense meals. Try stuffing grape leaves with chicken and chopped vegetables, then bake until tender for a meal rich in protein, fiber, vitamins and minerals. For a vegetarian option, substitute tofu or tempeh for meat as a source of protein, and add mushrooms for a meaty texture. Steam leftover grape leaves for use in pureed soup -- a blend of broccoli, onions, kale, grape leaves and other green veggies makes for a flavorful and nutrient-packed meal.

Halva at Pars Market

A common Middle Eastern dessert, Halva is a sweet confection that is traditionally served with a strong coffee or tea. There are two types: one is a flour-based concoction, and the other uses finely ground nuts as its base. The texture varies greatly depending on the area from which its recipe is derived. It is often garnished with crushed pistachios or covered in Chocolate. Recipes and additives vary somewhat from region to region, and from cook to cook.
The name comes from the Arabic word halawa, which means "sweet," a term that perfectly describes this concoction. Turkish and Hebrew cultures have recipes with slight variations on the Middle Eastern dessert. The inexpensive treat is eaten in small blocks and often savored, melting slowly on a person's tongue. at Pars Market you can find a large selection of best quality Halvas with different flavors such as Plain, with Pistachio, With Nuts and Mixed Chocolate Flavor....

Halva with Pistachio Nuts at Pars Market
Halva is a quite simple and popular confection to make and takes very little time to prepare. It contains only a few basic ingredients, including water, sugar, and flour. The addition of Rose Water is what makes this sweet confection so unique.
The most common type of grain flour used to make halva is Semolina, which is made from durum Wheat. It is most often coarsely ground, as opposed to the traditional cooking flour that is finely ground. The yellow coloring of the semolina flour, also referred to as sameed, gives the treat a rich hue. While it tends to be coarse before cooking, this flour becomes soft and porridge-like when it is cooked.

What is Tahini?

Tahini is a ground sesame seed paste, similar to peanut butter. It is a creamy, oily, and smooth nut butter rich in calcium. Tahini is most closely associated with the Middle East, where it is eaten as is, and often used in making Hummus (mashed chickpeas, flavored with lemon juice and garlic), Baba Ghanoush (a purée of eggplant, lemon juice, garlic, and oil), Halvah (a confection that includes honey or cane syrup), and other traditional dishes. Look for tahini in a glass jar or a can at Pars Market we sell large selection of Tahini in 1LB or 2LB sizes our Tahini is the best quality and always fresh and low price!

 

Culinary uses

 

In Turkey, tahini (tahin in Turkish) is mixed with Pekmez to form a dish called tahin-pekmez. Due to its high-caloric nature, it is served as a breakfast item or after meals as a dessert to dip pieces of bread in, especially during the wintertime.
In Iraq and some Persian Gulf countries, tahini is mixed with date syrup (rub) to make a sweet dessert usually eaten with bread. In Cyprus, tahini, or locally called tashi, is used as dipping for bread and in pitta Souvlaki rather than tzatziki, which is customary in Greece.

Pomegranate Molasses at Pars Market in columbia Maryland

 In my last post I talked about our great selection of Pomegranate Juice we carry at Pars Market. Now I would like to write this article about Pomegranate Molasses we sell at Pars Market.

 Pomegranate Molasses, sometimes referred to as pomegranate syrup, is a tart-sweet reduction of pomegranate juice with the approximate consistency of Maple Syrup. Used in the cuisines of the Middle East, India, Armenia, and Georgia, this syrup varies in taste, color, and viscosity by region.
This liquid is made by extracting the juice of pomegranate seeds, called arils, and boiling it down until much of the water has evaporated. The resulting syrup is thick and purplish-brown in color. The resulting syrup is rich and flavorful. Tangy and sweet, pomegranate molasses can be used to enhance the natural flavors of many foods, and is especially good in marinades for poultry, lamb, and goat.
It is a fundamental flavoring component in the Persian dish fesenjan. A thick sweet-and-sour stew, fesenjan most often features chicken or some other poultry in combination with walnuts, onions, and pomegranate molasses. Variations of fesenjan feature lamb, fish, or no meat, and almost all versions are served over rice.

  Origin

Since ancient times, the rose has been highly prized for its source of perfume, medicinal use and nutritional properties. In fact so much so that Ancient Greeks, Romans and Phoenecians placed as much importance on large public rose gardens as they did on wheat fields and fruit orchards.
Rose perfumes are made from rose oil, also called attar of roses, which is a mixture of Volatile essential oils obtained by steam-distilling the crushed petals of roses, a process first developed in Persian and Bulgaria. Rose water is a by-product of this process.

Uses

Rose water has a very distinctive flavour and is used heavily in Persian and Mesopotamian cuisine—especially in sweets such as nougat, raahat and baklava. Which these products be found at Pars Market! For example, rose water is used to give some types of Loukoum (or "Turkish Delight") their distinctive flavors. Beside its usage in food, it is also used as a Perfume, especially in religious ceremonies.

The Cypriot version of Mahleb uses rosewater. In Iran, it is also added to Tea, Ice Cream, Cookies and other sweets in small quantities, and in the Arab World and India it is used to flavour Milk and dairy-based dishes such as rice Pudding. It is also a key ingredient in sweet Lassi, a drink made from Yoghurt, Sugar and various Fruit juices, and is also used to make Jalleb. In Malaysia and Singapore, rose water is mixed with milk, sugar and pink food colouring to make a sweet drink called Bandung. Rose water is frequently used as a Halal substitute for red wine and other alcohols in cooking. At Pars Market you can find large selection of great quality Rose Water From Iran, Turkey, India, Pakistan and Lebanon! 

In parts of the Middle East, Rose water is commonly added to lemonade.
In India, rose water is used as eye drops to clear them.

It is also used in Indian Sweets and other food preparations (particularly Gulab Jamun, named from the Persian word for rose water). Rose water is often sprinkled in Indian weddings to welcome guests.

Teas & Coffees at Pars Market columbia Maryland

The story of tea begins in ancient China more than 5,000 years ago. Emperor Shen Nung required that all drinking water be boiled to prevent disease. One summer day, while his servants were boiling water for the court to drink, dried leaves from a nearby bush fell into the pot, turning the water brown. Shen Nung was enticed by the aroma, drank some of the liquid, and found it very refreshing. The story of coffee is equally serendipitous. According to legend, an Arab shepherd named Kaldi found his goats prancing energetically around a green-leafed shrub with bright red berries. Kaldi tried the berries himself and discovered their powerful, stimulant effect. The berries were soon used by monks at a local monastery to stay awake during extended hours of prayer. Before long, they were being dried for shipment to other monasteries, where monks pulverized and boiled the powder in hot water for consumption. Coffee was born. The teas and coffees featured at Pars Market are as close to the old-world tradition as you will find. There are white, green, black, red and oolong teas, loose or in silk bags (because paper is bleached, which compromises the purity of tea); herbals and flavored. You’'ll also find coffees from around the world, with specialty coffees from Italy, Turkey, Armenia, Brazil, Greece and Egypt.

Our pastry and sweet selections are filled with the sweet results of recipes created in the lands of our ancestors a thousand years ago and perfected by generations of bakery artisans.  But we could not call Pars an International Market if we limited our sweet tooth to just one tradition. That is why you will find pastries of many origins and flavors in our cases: rich Italian cookies, muffins bursting with berries, flaky croissants, buttery Danish and mouth-watering tortes.

Nuts & Dried Fruits at Pars Market Columbia Maryland

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.

Our very Unique and rare Gold Fish hookah
  A hookah is a device used for smoking flavorful tobacco, allowing for purification of the smoke by using a water basin before inhalation. The source of hookahs is in the Middle East, where one can still find the best quality hookahs in the world. Hookahs are made in a straightforward method with basic components.

Parts

The primary parts of a hookah are pictured in the picture. The end of the body is immersed in a water jar through which the smoke generated from burning tobacco passes. The smoke is stored in an air chamber above the water after it is purified by the water. Another positive side effect of the smoke going through the water is that it is cooled down to a temperature much more comfortable for the lungs. The hose is located on the top left section of the water jar. It is not fully displayed here, but the hose generally stretches 1 or more meters. The smoker smokes through the hose by puffing on it. After inhaling, the smoker exhales clean and aromatic smoke. Hookahs are generally smoked in a social, group setting where smokers can enjoy each others’ company.

What Do You Inhale from a Hookah?
Traditionally hookahs are used to smoked shisha, which is flavored tobacco. Nowadays the following things are used to make shisha:
1. Tobacco
2. Treacle (uncrystallized syrup produced in refining sugar)
3. Honey
4. Sugar
5. Molasses
6. Glycerin
7. Nicotine
8. Dried Fruit
9. Distilled Water

Usually shishas have a base of fruit flavor such as Apple, Mango or Peach. But, flavors that are offshoots of these fruity favors like Banana split are now rising in popularity.

Today, there is a range of shisha flavors out there. Unique flavors are made because essentially every ingredient can be combined in dried, tobacco, glycerin and sweetener.
at Pars Market you can find all size and color of Hookahs at the lowest prices in the market our prices are really  low no one can beat our low prices, and our selection is amazing, Come by to check it out for yourself in person!

What is The Source of Hookahs?
The term “hookah” hails from the Indian “huqqa”, a word that originated around the 1500’s when the hookah was first invented by a Persian physician, Abul-Fath Gilani. He developed a system to pass smoke with a water basin to purify the smoke as he was concerned with the health risks of smoking. But, it is said that even before he invented it, hookah existed in other parts of Persia. Anyhow, hookah began to gain popularity in the nearby lands of Pakistan and Iran from where it came to Turkey and Lebanon. Once the hookah reached Turkey, its fame surged among the Turkish elite, and it quickly spread through Lebanon and Syria to the rest of the Middle East and into northern Africa. Today, it is being used in almost every country of the globe.

As it traveled from Persia to the rest of the globe, the hookah gained a lot of names.
Nargile (also pronounced Argilee) - Mainly used in Italy, Turkey and Israel
Narguile - used in Spain
Lula (or lulava) - used in Albania, Bosnia, Herzegovina
Sheesha - used by nations in Northern Africa from Morocco to Egypt, and the Arab nations in the Persian Gulf such as Kuwait, Qatar, and Saudi Arabia
Qalyan - used in Iran
Karim Khan - used in Russia, Belarus
Chillim - used in Afghanistan and Uzbekistan
Huqqa - used in India and Pakistan
Gudugudaa - used in Maldives
Marra Pipe - used in the UK
