Central Market Israeli Couscous

Product Description

Foodies discovered this delicious line of products during our adventurous world travels. Israeli Couscous is also known as Ptitim and Pearl Couscous. Is a small, ball-shaped pasta made from wheat flour and then oven toasted. Toasting gives it a nutty flavor and chewy bite when cooked. Saute with onions and garlic, add to salads or soups, or serve with chicken and fish entrees. Mangia! Cooks in 10 minutes. Was invented during the austerity period in Israel (from 1949 to 1959). Israel's first prime minister, David Ben-Gurion, asked Eugen Proper, one of the founders of the Osem food company, to create a wheat-based substitute to rice. Consequently, it was nicknamed 'Ben-Gurion's rice' by the people.
