Where did the washed process originate and how has it developed and progressed? And what are the different forms and variations it has taken over the years? I have a hunch that it began in Ethiopia and am hoping to confirm my suspicions.

  • Just speculating... Ethiopia is arid. So, mold should not be growing on fruits while drying as a whole. I suspect a more humid place is the first invented place as a countermeasure against mold. Or, maybe high altitudes of Ethiopian mountains? I hope that we'll learn the answer soon.

    I don't know. :) I hardly “like” something. Mostly I just read, but forget to vote. Then, on one occasion browse through a lot of posts and vote for many.
