My girlfriend Stephanie can never remember if Rosh Hashanah is the happy holiday or the sad one? I remind her it's Jewish New Year. It's the happy one! Next week, we atone.
This week, we eat apples and challah dipped in honey. Challah is a super tasty Jewish egg bread, a cousin to brioche. Sorry to boast (I'll atone for it next week), but this Methodist can make a mean challah. If you want to make challah with me on Thursday, pick these things up from the grocery today.
- 2 packages of active dry yeast
- 1/2 cup sugar or honey
- 6 cups unbleached all purpose or bread flour
- 4 eggs
- 1 stick butter
- golden raisins, optional
If I can't pull it off by myself, I'll either:
A. pull my kids out of school for the day so they can help me
B. take step by step photographs
I suppose B. is more responsible.
Come back tomorrow for bread class!
