Also known as Olea europaea (oil of Europe), olives have long been staples of the economies of countries along the Mediterra- nean coast. These evergreen trees are now grown worldwide for their fruit and the oil it provides. Growing alongside western culture, however, the roots of the olive tree reach far deeper and today being ANZAC Day it is appropriate to dig into the tree’s history. Traditionally representative of peace and victory, olive branches have, for centuries, adorned the uniforms of many a man march- ing to war. According to Greek mythol- ogy, the origins of this represen- tation run a little something like this: Zeus’ daughter, Athena (the goddess of wisdom and war) had a little spat with her uncle, Posei- don (god of the sea) who was forever trying to claim earthly treasures for himself. Never one to mess about, Poseidon aggressively thrust his trident into the Acropolis, which brought forth a spring of water, thereby staking his claim. Wise as she was and rather than sinking to her uncle’s level, Athena took the high ground and planted an olive tree beside the spring. The people of the city appre- ciated her gift more than Posei- don’s – ‘well’ it did come by way of a major act of vandalism! – so, they pronounced the city hers and named it Athens. Worn since by Greek brides and Olympians, olive wreathes continue to carry the tradition of conflict and resolution. Mixing mythology here, but maybe it could be said that Poseidon did temporarily get his vengeance when (according to the Bible) Noah was left to sail the flooded globe looking for a new home for all creatures great and small. However, whichever deity ordained that Noah must take to the waves, it was again the olive branch – this time clasped in the beak of a dove – that signalled an end to upheaval. From the time of the ancient Greeks, right through to modern day, the olive branch has repre- sented both peace and victory at the same time; perhaps a sad indication that, as Roman writer, Vegetius, so succinctly put it: “Igitur qui desiderat pacem, praeparet bellum – if you want peace, prepare for war.” Olive trees – seeking peace in the kitchen? NOW that ANZAC Day’s here, we thought we’d take a look at a little treat that’s been enjoyed for many years. You will need: 100g butter 1/2 cup golden syrup 1/2 tsp baking soda 2 tbsp hot milk 1/2 cup flour 1/2 cup sugar 1 cup coconut 1 cup rolled oats To prepare: Line baking trays with baking paper and heat oven to 180 degrees Celcius. In a large bowl, stir together sugar, coconut, rolled oats and sifted flour. Melt the butter in a saucepan over a medium heat, combining golden syrup. Remove from the heat. Dissolve baking soda in hot milk. Pour the wet ingredients into the bowl of dry ingredients, stirring until combined. Roll the mixture into balls – roughly one tablespoon in terms of amount – and flatten onto the baking trays. Leave a few centimetres between each. The biscuits should be baked until golden-brown about 10-15 minutes. Allow to stand for a few minutes then leave biscuits to finish cooling on a wire rack. This will also give them time to harden. Store in an airtight container or serve and enjoy! ANZAC biscuits – done up like a digger’s dinner!
