Some of our favorite kosher Purim recipes.
Purim is celebrated on the 14th day of Adar. It is the Jewish festival that commemorates the deliverance of the Persian Jews from the plot of the evil Haman to exterminate them, as recorded in the biblical Book of Esther.
It is traditional to eat Oznei Haman (English: Haman’s Ears) on Purim filled with poppy seed, nuts, dates, halva and anything else you can think of but you can also turn them into a savory treat.
The word Oznei Haman is Hebrew, but the Yiddish word, favored by Jews of European origin, call this wonderful cake Hamentaschen.
Here are some of our favorite Purim recipes:
|–Traditional Eastern-European Hamentaschen made with a yeast dough|
–Or try these Oznei Haman made with a biscuit dough
–Bet you never thought about a savory filling for your ‘taschen’! Try these.
It’s traditional to give Mishloach Manot for Purim and you could fill your Mishloach Manot with some of these home-baked goodies. Place a few biscuits and fresh hamentaschen into a clear cellophane bag, seal with some pretty ribbon. Your family and friends will appreciate the care you put into their gift.
