Inatos Mix for Potatoes
Inatos mix for potatoes affords you the opportunity to effortlessly make traditional roasted potatoes anytime. Potatoes arrived in Greece in the 18th century via Spanish Conquistadors via Peru. The most famous potatoes in Greece come from the Cycladic island of Naxos. The island cultivates more than 8 million kilos of them each year, and it even has its own festival. Potatoes are a very common ingredient of tasty Greek specialties like mouzaka, skordalia (potato and garlic dip), patates yachni (potato stew), patates plaki (potatoes cooked in the oven with tomatoes, onion and herbs, sometimes also with fish), lemon roasted potatoes, patato-keftedes (potato fritters), patato-salata (Greek potato salad with boiled potato chunks, olive oil, mustard, yogurt, or mayonnaise), oven-roasted potatoes with lamb, chicken or bifteki (burger) and many more!

- Oregano contains chemicals that might help reduce cough. Oregano also might help with digestion and with fighting against some bacteria and viruses. People use oregano for wound healing, parasite infections, and many other conditions.
- Mustard is good for you because it contains several antioxidants that provide various health benefits including anti-cancer, antibacterial, antiviral, antifungal, anti-inflammatory, and wound-healing properties.
- Basil is a plant with antiseptic and expectorant properties. It is considered a great diaphoretic. Basil’s healing properties are related to the essential oil it contains, which is also a very good anticonvulsant. The “tea” from basil leaves is digestive, diuretic, and stimulating, it relieves intestine and nerve migraines. For nursing mothers, basil helps to increase milk production. Basil extract is beneficiary against stomatitis, herpes labialis, and nausea (nausea of pregnancy). Consuming basil leaves with olive oil, as a salad, fights constipation.

“Herbs were the main ingredient of Greek cooking all the way back to ancient times. Being a natural product of so much variety in the Greek countryside and taking advantage of the ideal climate, they gave the Ancient Greeks the ingredients to flavour their food, as well as the possibility to cure people of diseases. As far as their medical use is concerned, the physician Hippocrates was known for basing the Hippocratic elemental healing system on medicinal herbs, and this system is considered one of the cornerstones of later Western medicine. On the other hand, due to their abundance and simplicity, culinary herbs were widely grown and dried, and their combination with one of the crown jewels of Mediterranean cuisine, olive oil, was commonplace in the preparation of a meal. Sometimes, herbs were also used in some religious ceremonies during the time period.
Some of the main herbs used in Greek cuisine include oregano (known in the classical world for its association with Aphrodite and happiness, whereas today it is considered the king of Greek herbs), thyme, sage, parsley, dill, mint, spearmint, fennel, and many others.
Spices, on their part, were also the main ingredient of an ancient Greek meal, but it is true that the majority of spices used in Greek cookery today can be linked to the millennia of interaction Greece has had with other great civilizations, such as the Romans, the Persians, the Turks, the Arabs and a host of others from all over the world. Today, spices like garlic, onion, cinnamon, cumin, coriander, nutmeg, pepper, paprika, cloves, and sesame constitute an integral part of what makes Greek cuisine so aromatic. A special mention has to be made about greek saffron from Kozani and greek mastic from Chios, both of which have a P.D.O. Designation, are only grown in these specific regions and are regarded as number one worldwide.”
