Twittersphere reacts to discovery

“I want to know who understood that. Like what was their thought process behind it,” one user said.

“I want to visit Afghanistan and learn how they do it, hopefully one day I want to have my own grape farm in Zimbabwe,” another user wrote.

One user pointed out that this natural preservation method for keeping food fresh is much better than preservatives containing chemicals.

“Does it only work with grapes or does it also work with other fruits?” asked a curious tweep.

What is this old method?

Known as Kangina, this method of food preservation was developed centuries ago in rural northern Afghanistan. Thanks to this brilliant technique, people in remote communities who cannot afford imported produce can enjoy fresh fruit throughout the winter months.

They use mud from the village, mix it with straw and water, then form the bowls. After laying the bowls in the sun for about five hours, they place the grapes in the dry bowls. They are sealed with more mud and stored in a dry, cool corner over the winter.

Most families in Afghan villages do the same, in a process that takes up to 20 days. Unpreserved grapes are either eaten or dried and made into raisins.

Sounds pretty interesting and cool, doesn’t it? Would you be interested in trying this method one day? You can easily save grapes for later, even when they’re not in season!
