Sri Lanka: Honey and parched corn
The brothers Thapassu and Bhalluka were merchants. And (again: as I understand it) they have met Siddharta in a harbour in Sri Lanka.
Later Siddharta was called the Buddha and it seems Thapassu became his sixth diciple. Difficult stories when you know nothing about Buddhism.
But ... also here honey plays an important part!
