A Fruit Filled Holiday


Tu-012513-ChickenSweet and Sour Chicken

By Ruby G.

This is a simple recipe for chicken thighs or breasts.  You need chopped onions, low fat French dressing, fresh apricots (or if they are not in season, apricot jam that’s natural with no sugar added), and slivers of almonds.

Sprinkle garlic powder over the chicken, cover with chopped onions and liberally coat with dressing and fresh apricots. Bake in a 350° degree oven until browned (about 15 minutes on each side). Add slivered almonds and bake another 10 minutes.  This dish can be refrigerated and reheated the next day.

Serve over rice or quinoa.

Caramelized Fruit and Challa Kugel

By Rachel Bluth

Challa Kugel, or bread pudding as it is better known in the culinary world, is one of the most versatile foods – it can be served hot or cold, for breakfast, lunch or dinner, as a main dish (if it’s put in the middle of plate and served on good china), side dish (served on the side and grudgingly allowing the fish or meat imposter to steal  the glory) or as the elegant dessert, served warm, in a parfait glass with a drizzle of its yummy caramel glaze and a scoop of ice cream or a dusting of confectionary sugar.

It is also one of the most forgiving concoctions in that measurements are not written in stone, and you can make it your own by adding or subtracting ingredients – the only rule to follow is to bake it at 350 degrees in a pre-heated oven until it is firm and a rich brown color.

 

Ingredients:Tu-012513-Kugel

1 large egg challa  (or any kind you like)
2 large eggs
¾ cups dark brown sugar
¼ cup regular granulated sugar
3 teaspoons ground cinnamon
¾ cups canola oil
2 apples (or any firm fruit) peeled, cored and sliced thinly
1 tablespoon vanilla (or any compatible) extract
½ cup raisins (soaked in 1 cup warm water to plump up) *optional

 

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350° degrees

Grease 9×13 aluminum foil baking pan

Moisten challah under warm tap water, squeezing off gently most of the water, then put into large bowl.

Add remaining ingredients and mix well with your hands, not a spoon.

Pour mixture into prepared greased tin foil pan.

Bake for about 1 hour until completely firm and golden brown.

 

 

Kiwi Sorbet

By Tova Younger

This sorbet was invented when we had a bunch of kiwis on our counter for about a month. They never softened! In desperation and perhaps out of fear that they would be tossed into the trash, we decided to blend them with sugar and freeze. The results were not that great – after all, those kiwis were not quite ripe – but we saw that we were on to something. We made the next batch with ripe kiwis, and it was delicious.

 

Tu-012513-SorbetIngredients:
450 grams/one pound sweet ripe kiwis
1/3 cup sugar
Optional – 1 egg white

 

Simply wash off the kiwis and cut them in half. Scoop out the fruit and blend with sugar. Taste, and add more sugar if desired. Transfer to large, flat container and freeze. A few hours – or weeks – later, re-whip. For more volume, add an egg white. Refreeze and surprise your family and guests with a beautiful and delicious dessert.

To serve, use a small scoop, and put two or three scoops on a plate with some fresh kiwi slices.

The mishloach manos of times gone by were sometimes simple and sometimes elaborate, but the main focus was on the preparation of the delicious food they contained.

One of the earliest special Purims we have on record was celebrated by the Jews of Granada and Shmuel HaNagid, the eleventh-century rav, poet, soldier and statesman, and one of the most influential Jews in Muslim Spain.

Jews, wake up! Stop educating the world and start educating yourselves.

The program took on special significance as it marked not only the first anniversary of Rebbetzin Kudan’s levayah but also the 27th yahrzeit of Rebbetzin Chaya Mushka Schneerson, a”h.

It captures the love of the Jewish soul as only Shlomo Hamelech could portray it – and as only Rabbi Miller could explain it.

Erudite and academic, drawing from ancient and modern sources, the book can be discussed at the Shabbos table as well as in kollel.

I’m here to sit next to you and help you through this Purim with three almost-too-easy mishloach manot ideas, all made with cost-conscious paper bags.

Kids want to be like their friends, and they want to give and get “normal” mishloach manos stocked with store-bought treats.

“OMG, it’s so cute, you’re so cute, everything is so cute.”

A program that started with a handful of volunteers has grown exponentially to include students from a wider array of backgrounds.
