  1. My wife the food historian wants to know where you got this recipe.

    See, there are references in classical sources to a “black soup” that the Spartans considered staple food but others found unpalatable. To my wife’s knowledge nobody knows how the Spartan “black soup” was made. Is this recipe from a period source, a modern reconstruction, or something unrelated entirely?
