Butter Made from verr or bosk milk

**note.. butter is used more or less in the northern regions as it would spoil in the heat of the south... **

I was fond of Constance. Why should she herd verr and churn butter in Torvaldsland? Let her serve naked and loving, bangled, perfumed, made-up, on the multicolored tiles of some southern domicile. Let her crawl naked, collared, to the feet of a southern master. Beasts of Gor
Cheese Made from verr or bosk milk "In the cafes I had feasted well. I had had verr meat, cut in chunks and threaded on a metal rod, with slices of peppers and larma, and roasted; vulo stew with raisins, nuts, onions and honey; a kort with melted cheese and nutmeg; hot Bazi tea, sugared and later, Turian wine." 
Tribesmen of Gor 

"The Tarn Keeper...brought the food, bosk steak and yellow bread, peas and Torian olives, and two golden-brown, starchy Suls, broken open and filled with melted bosk cheese." 
Assassin of Gor 

"Clitus, too, had brought two bottles of Ka-la-na wine, a string of eels, cheese of the Verr and a sack of red olives from the groves of Tyros." 
Raiders of Gor
Eggs come from vulo's and gants "Soon, I smelled the frying of vulo eggs in a large, flat pan…" 
Slave Girl of Gor

"Eta piled several of the hot, tiny eggs, earlier kept fresh in cool sand within the cave, on a plate, with heated yellow bread, for him." 
Slave Girl of Gor

I stepped aside to let a young girl pass, who carried two baskets of eggs, those of the migratory arctic gant. They nest in the mountaim of the Hrimgar and in steep, rocky outcroppings, called bird cliffs, found here and there jutting out of the tundra. The bird cliffs doubtless bear some geological relation to the Hrimgar chains. When such eggs are frozen they are eaten like apples.

Sa-Tarna Grain staple of gor used for cooking, baking and brewing "Economically, the base of the Gorean life was the free peasant, which was perhaps the lowest but undoubtedly the most fundamental caste, and the staple crop was a yellow grain called Sa-Tarna, or Life-Daughter." 
Tarnsman of Gor

The Older Tarl and I may have drunk too much of that fermented brew concocted with fiendish skill from the yellow grain, Sa-Tarna, and called Pagar Sa-Tarna, Pleasure of the Life-Daughter, but almost always 'Paga' for short.  I doubted that I would ever touch the stuff again.
Tarnsman of Gor

Candy are many different kinds

"He yelled something raucous and ribald. It had to do with "tastas" or "stick candies." These are not candies, incidentally, like sticks, as for example, licorice or peppermint sticks, but soft, rounded, succulent candies, usually covered with a coating of syrup or fudge, rather in the nature of the caramel apple, but much smaller, and, like a caramel apple, mounted on sticks. the candy is prepared and the stick, from the bottom, is thrust up, deeply, into it. It is then ready to be eaten." ... "These candies are usually sold at such places as parks, beaches, and promenades, at carnivals, expositions and fairs, and at various types of popular events, such as plays, song dramas, races, games, and kaissa matches. They are popular even with children." ... "The expression was sometimes used by men for women such as we." 
Dancer of Gor

Cavier [eggs of white grunt] cavier...ie...fish eggs "In the hall was a open circle of small tables, at which a handful of guests, on cushions and mats, reclined. There were four men and two women at these tables, other than the Lady Florence, the hostess, and her guest of the past several days, the Lady Metpomene. The tables were covered with cloths of glistening white and a service of gold. Before each guest there were tiny slices of tospit and larma, small pastries, and in a tiny golden cup, with a small golden spoon, the clustered, black, tiny eggs of the white grunt. The first wine, a light white wine, was being deferentially served by Pamela and Bonnie."

Honey honey is.... well.. honey "In the cafes I had feasted well. I had had verr meat, cut in chunks and threaded on a metal rod, with slices of peppers and larma, and roasted; vulo stew with raisins, nuts, onions and honey; a kort with melted cheese and nutmeg; hot Bazi tea, sugared and later, Turian wine." 
Tribesmen of Gor

"I saw small fruit trees, and hives, where honey bees were raised; and there were small sheds, here and there, with sloping roofs of boards; in some such sheds might craftsmen work, in others fish might be dried or butter made." 
Marauders of Gor
Insects edible bugs "On the tenth day, instead of the pan of bread, with the water, Ute thrust a different pan under the door. I screamed. Tiny things, with tiny sounds, moved, crawling over and about one another in it. I screamed again, and thrust it back out. It had been filled with the fat, loathsome green insects which, in the Ka-la-na thicket, Ute had told we were edible. Indeed, she had eaten them. 'they are nourishing,' she had said." 
Captive of Gor
Mint Sticks candy "She withdrew, head down. She picked up the small tray from the stand near the table. On it was a small vessel containing a thick, sweet liqueur from the distant Turia, the Ar of the South, and the two tiny glasses from which we had sipped it. On the tray too, was the metal vessel which contained black wine, steaming and bitter from far Thentis, famed for its tarn flocks, the small yellow-enamled cups from which we had drunk the black wine, its spoons and sugars, a tiny bowl of mint sticks, and the softened, dampened cloths on which we had wiped our fingers."

Mul-fungas eaten by slaves (muls) in the nest of the priest kings "It is not hard to get used to the mul-fungus, for it has almost no taste, being and extremely bland, pale, whitish, vegetable like matter." 
Priest Kings of Gor
Nuts no specific kind mentioned "…vulo stew with raisins, nuts, onions, and honey." 
Tribesmen of Gor
Pastries   "On the tray were assorted pastries, on the other was a variety of small, spiced custards." 
Guardsman of Gor 

"I shop for wealthy women," said she, "for pastries and tarts and cakes-things they will not trust their female slaves to buy." 
Nomads of Gor
Salt   "Most salt at Klima is white, but certain of the mines deliver red salt, red from the ferrous oxide in its composition, which is called the Red Salt of Kasra, after its port of embarkation, at the juncture of the Upper and Lower Fayeen." 
Tribesmen of Gor

"…salt, incidentally, is obtained by the men of Torvaldsland, most commonly, from sea water or the burning of seaweed. It is also, however, a trade commodity, and is sometimes taken in raids. the red and yellow salts of the south, some of which I saw on the tables, are not domestic to Torvaldsland" 
Marauders of Gor

"...Near him in places of honor, at a long, low table, above the bowls of yellow and red salt...." 
Nomads of Gor

Slave porridge   "We had been called from our cells well before dawn. Each of us had been forced to eat a large bowl of heavy slave gruel. We wouldn't be fed again until that night." 
Captive of Gor 

"The bond-maids did not much care for their gruel, unsweetened, mud-like Sa-Tarna meal; with raw fish." 
Marauders of Gor
Spices variety of spices, use imagination "Some of the peppers and spices, relished even by the children of the Tahari districts, were sufficient to convince an average good fellow of Thentis or Ar that the roof of the mouth and his tongue were being torn out of his head." 
Tribesmen of Gor
Sullage common gorean soup used for meals "First she boiled and simmered a kettle of Sullage, a common Gorean soup consisting of three standard ingredients, and, as it is said, whatever else may be found, saving only the rocks of the field. The principal ingredients of Sullage are the golden Sul, …the curled, red, ovate leaves of the Tur-Pah, a tree parasite,… and the salty, blue secondary roots of the Kes shrub…" 
Priest Kings of Gor
Sugar there are AT LEAST 4 varieties of sugars "With a tiny spoon, its tip no more than a tenth of a hort in diameter, she placed four measures of white sugar, and six of yellow in the cup, …" 
Tribesmen of Gor

Lola now returned to the small table and, kneeling, head down, served us our dessert, slices of tospit, sprinkled with four Gorean sugars.
