The unsuccessful Bar-Kochba uprising against the Romans in the second century BC severely depleted the Jewish population and made normal life virtually impossible, causing in a return to ancient agricultural patterns and a sharp decline in importations of goods. A variety of fruits were also grown, including pomegranates, peaches, almonds, nuts, apples, pears of various kinds, carobs, black strawberries, citrons, peanuts, and pistachio nuts. Legumes such as ful, vetches, sweet peas, beans, lentils, peas, lupines, and sesame continued to constitute food staples. However, the main crops were still wheat, olives, and grapes. The typical meal consisted of a slice of bread dipped in oil or vinegar, a dish of legumes (soup or gruel), and fruits, particularly figs. Chapter 5 includes a large variety of Jewish recipes based on the period.
