That time of year is upon us again….So your getting a bonus recipe of the week!
While we are not Jewish, we do still celebrate the Passover Seder meal. It is a wonderful tradition that teaches us where our faith comes from and reminds us of the last days before Jesus gave the ultimate sacrifice for us. The Seder meal comes to life in a whole new way when you see that each step was prophesying the Messiah’s (Jesus) coming and understand how each was fulfilled through him. I always come away with a refreshing of my spirit.

This year it kinda caught me off guard. I had it on my radar but before I knew it was here. I ran out of time to order our usual matzoh and it became crunch time. So to Pintrest i went….I found several recipes and came up with a concoction that worked!
2 1/4 c. flour
1/2 t. kosher salt
1/3 c. olive oil
1/2 c. water
fine sea salt
place a pizza stone or cookie sheet into oven and pre-heat oven to 500 degrees.
Mix flour, salt & oil in food processor. Gradually add water while continuing to run. Dough will ball together and become soft. NOT STICKY, if that happens gradually add a few more T. of flour. Dump out onto well floured surface and divide into 12 portions.
On a floured surface roll each ball into an 8in. circle. lightly salt top side with sea salt, patting it in with your hand. Pierce salted circle with a fork several times to reduce dough from puffing.
Place dough on preheated pan in the oven for 2-3 minutes. Flip and continue baking for 2-3 minutes. If using a cookie sheet dough might not get as crisp, so when i finished the 1st bake of all 12 portions I reduced the heat to 250 degrees and continued to bake all of them for an additional 15-20 minutes or until crisp.
Serve with Charoset.
Here are two of my favorite Charoset recipes.
2 tart apples
1/2 c. pecans
1/4 t. cinnamon
1 t. honey
1 T. sweet Passover wine
Combine all in food processor and chop until desired texture and thickness.
1 – 15 oz. box of golden raisins
20 dried apricots
1/2 c. almonds
1 cup apple sauce
2 T. honey
2 t. cinnamon
2 T. sweet Passover wine
I usually go all our for our meal. Fixing the works!!! Here is one of my favorites to fix “Beef Brisket with carrots and sweet potatoes”. But we decided to keep things simple and easy this year and I fixed Homemade Chicken Noodles.
