It’s April, and besides being the month in which we all look forward to a visit from a certain mythical rabbit obsessed with hoarding decorative hard-boiled eggs, April is also the month in which the Jewish holiday of Passover is celebrated. The holiday, celebrating the deliverance of the Jewish people from slavery in ancient Egypt, is happening from April 14th to April 22nd, 2014.
Significant among the traditional foods eaten during the holiday is an unleavened bread called matzoh. Matzoh is said to be a symbol intended to promote humility and an appreciation for freedom (as a tangible reminder of what lives of forced servitude were like) and to deter arrogance and inflated ego.
This recipe for Fried Matzoh, comes courtesy of Carrington Farms, a leading organic food brand with a 10-year history of developing healthy, delicious food products including coconut oil, chia seeds, and flax/hemp seeds.
