Did the Apostle Paul like Doughnuts?

Maybe. The early Romans had a version of doughnuts call “globi”, which means balls in Latin. The recipe comes from a Roman soldier, politician and author named Cato the Elder who lived from 234-149 B.C.E. A book of his called De agri cultura  (On Agriculture) has survived down to today and contains some ancient Roman recipes including the one for globi. These little doughnut holes taste like a deep fried cheesy sweet doughnut. These treats are simple to make and could be a fun and delicious treat to enjoy during your family worship. Here is a link to the recipe on a website called A Dollop of History.
