Communicating With the Dead

In ancient Greek the lupinus seeds were used as a special diet for those who wished to communicate with the dead. They caused intoxication state of mind, which probably helped them connect with the departed better.

The seeds are very bitter and in order to be able to eat them, they need to be boiled a few times. In some Mediterranean countries they are considered as delicacy.
