Purim Activities and Recipes
Yesterday, Miriam helped me make Hamantashen or Haman’s Ears. I know it sounds weird to eat someone’s ears, but if anyone deserved, really, Haman did. If you are familiar with the book of Esther, you’ll recall that Haman was the wicked, manipulative man who tried to annihilate the Jews. But because of Queen Esther’s bravery to take a stand for her people, the Jews were saved. Thus, the celebration of Purim.
Sephardi Haman’s Ears Ingredients:
3 eggs
½ teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons sugar
4 tablespoons water
2¼ cups flour
Oil for deep frying
Cinnamon sugar
Honey, lemon juice, water
(for dipping syrup)
1. Beat the eggs until light and fluffy.
2. Add salt, sugar and water to eggs; beat well.
3. Sift in flour to make the dough. Knead until smooth.
4. Roll the dough on a lightly floured board.
5. Cut into half-moon shapes with a pastry cutter.
6. Pinch the center of each half-moon, like a bow tie, and fold the ends up to make “ears.”
7. Deep fry in hot oil until golden brown.
8. Cool on paper towels and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar.
9. For dipping syrup:Combine equal parts honey, lemon juice and water (or adjust to taste) in a sauce pan and bring to a boil.
