We all know Columbus found America on his way to India, searching for a new, less expensive, therefore more profitable, route to the epicenter of the spice market.
Spice trading has been part of the economic, political, military, and even religious development of Europe and Asia. These culinary, medicinal, and spiritual supplies are so important in human history that some are even mentioned in the Bible.
Wars between empires, kingdoms, and nations affected directly the availability of spices and consequently their prices. In specific situations, spices were used as a paying method and there were times when only the royals and religious could afford them.
Several European empires and kingdoms have managed to control the monopoly of spices throughout fragments of history. That meant the royals themselves were involved in convoys overseas to reach the shiploads of their rivals.
But the exquisiteness of exotic spices was worth the risks and it paid extremely well for those who dared and survived.
History has changed, but spices are equally important, more popular, and easier to acquire. There are no lives at stake. But the secrets of the highest quality of exotic spices still are not accessible to all enterprises.
