The Freds Cook For Passover!
Well folks, Passover is once again upon us! For the uninitiated, Passover is a Jewish holiday that commemorates the Israelites escape from the bondage of slavery in Egypt. The story is told that the Jews left Egypt in such a hurry they could not wait for the bread they were baking for their journey to rise and therefore in commemoration, for the duration of Passover, observant Jews refrain from eating leavened products. Depending on family origin and tradition, different Jews restrict their diets to different degrees during this holiday. Some only refrain from leavened products made with the 5 forbidden grains (wheat, barley, rye, spelt and oats) unless labeled kosher for Passover; others will also not eat legumes, corn, millet and rice. It all gets very confusing, even for members of the tribe, so to aid you in your Passover meal planning, the Freds are providing you with a guide to Passover friendly recipes from our archives. Enjoy!
