Yummy, yummy and pretty healthy too. With ingredients both used in Cypriot and Greek cooking. The scientific name of the carob tree is 'Ceratonia siliqua' derived from the Greek word 'keration' which means horn as the shape of the pod itself. In Cyprus, another common name is 'terratsi', a word that is probably derived from its Latin scientific name, Ceratonia. Carob is also referred to as St John's bread following the legend that St' John the Baptist was feeding on the pods of this tree while in the desert. I made this up when I wanted the taste of Carob in a cold drink that was also dairy free.
