There is nothing like Apples and having eaten a special Compote for the holidays , I thought how great it would be next time to include Cranberries with pears. Meanwhile I’ve been dining elsewhere and had some great dishes in families whom welcomed me into their homes this holiday season.
Talking about desserts, Baked apples are a favourite in my house with cloves and cranberries but also sliced apples with cinnamon go well with some home-made ice cream a favourite recipe which I make regularly since a close friend shared it with me.
Being invited to strangers home of different denominations is a pleasure, the chance to bless receiving such delicious dishes some which remind me of my childhood favourites at my religious aunts homes. Still the tzimmes I make is an improvement on the one we ate, but the enjoyment of Carrot Muffins, Cupcakes and my Pumpkin Soup will probably get another mention after Yom Kippur when we enjoy breaking the fast with some traditional recipes. For now enjoy this Cranberry Bread recipe I tried on Tu-B’shvat but its great for Rosh Hashana also.
