Boston Spice Massachusetts State House On Beacon Street
If you have ever visited the State House in Boston Massachusetts, you might be wondering why they have a 4’11” carved fish hanging in the House of Representatives. This stately fish is called “The Sacred Cod”. It represents the importance of the fishing industry in the early development of the state. They even named the curved part of the Cape after this fish. I’m telling you, this fish is famous! At Boston spice, we couldn’t let this fish go without a tribute and spice blend that accentuates its delicate flavor. We combined; rosemary, basil, parsley, sage, and several other aromatic spices together to create The Sacred Cod spice.

Poised high aloft the old hall of the Massa­chu­setts House of Repre­sen­ta­tives, riding serenely the sound waves of debate, unper­turbed by the ebb and flow of enact­ment and repeal or the desul­tory storms that vexed the nether depths of oratory, there has hung through immemo­rial years an ancient codfish, quaintly wrought in wood and painted to the life.

Humble the subject and homely the design; yet this painted image bears on its finny front a majesty greater than the dignity that art can lend to graven gold or chiseled marble. The sphere it fills is vaster than that through which its prototype careered with all the myriad tribes of the great deep. The lessons that may be learned of it are nobler than any to be drawn from what is beautiful; for this sedate and solitary fish is instinct with memories and proph­ecy, like an oracle. It swims symbolic in that wider sea whose confines are the limits set to the activities of human thought. It typifies to the citizens of the Common­wealth and of the world the founding of a State. It commem­o­rates Democracy. It celebrates the rise of free institutions. It emphasizes progress. It epitomizes Massachu­setts.
