A Fruit Filled Holiday


Meanwhile, mix the frozen berries with the apple pie filling in one bowl. In a separate bowl mix the rest of the ingredients to make the crumble topping.

When the pie shell has cooled, pour the berry apple filling into the shell and then top with the crumble topping. Put the pie on a piece of aluminum foil in case any of the liquid bubbles over.

Bake for about 55 minutes or until the liquid is bubbling and the topping looks golden brown.

 

 

Bobbi’s Banana* Cake

By Rachel Weiss

 

Ingredients:

2 eggs
1 c sugar
1/3 cup oil
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup mashed banana (3 small or 2 big)
1-1/2 cup flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp baking powder

 

Directions:

In a mixing bowl beat eggs at medium speed, gradually adding sugar, oil (canola my preference), vanilla, mashed banana, baking soda and baking powder. Set to lowest speed and add flour slowly until well mixed.

Pour into lightly greased 9” square baking pan and bake at 325 degrees for 50 to 60 minutes. It’s done when a wooden toothpick inserted into its center comes out clean.

Recipe can be doubled or tripled and baked in separate pans (experiment with size) or cupcake holders and frozen for future use.

*Bananas are of the ho’adama family and not included in the ha’etz themed Tu B’Shevat seudah. However, a slight variation of the recipe will qualify it as Tu B’Shevat fare and enhance its nutritional value and flavor to boot; simply substitute ground almonds for half the flour. For extra kick, dissolve a heaping teaspoon of coffee granules in a few drops of boiling water and add to mixture.

Hint: Overripe bananas can be mashed and stored in freezer in plastic containers. This will save the fruit from going to waste and save you time when you’re ready to bake.

By Ann Novick

Peel fruit – Apples, peaches, pears or plumbs – and remove pits. Cut into smaller pieces.

Place fruit in pot and fill with water to reach the level of the fruit, not to cover.  Add sugar or sweetener to taste.

Bring to a boil and cook for 1/2 hour or until the apple is soft.

Question: I recently loaned money to a friend who has been able to repay only part of it. This was an interest-free loan. We exchanged a signed IOU, not a proper shtar with witnesses, since I have always trusted her integrity and only wanted a document that confirms what was loaned and what was repaid. Now that shemittah is approaching, what should I do? Should I forgive the loan? And if my friend is not able to repay it, may I deduct the unpaid money from my ma’aser requirement?
