When the Israelites made grain offerings, they were supposed to bring grains with salt, oil, and frankincense. (Lev. 2:1) Alternately, they could bring baked or fried unleavened cakes or wafers with oil. (Lev. 2:4-8) They also needed to be seasoned with salt. (Lev. 2:13) In other words, sacrifices of tasty pita, roti, or matza appeared to be on the menu for the Hebrew priests. I can almost smell it from here... yum!
