So, in honor of Purim, we're bringing back sprinkle/multi-color/funfetti challah. This year, we're using jimmies (did you know that we don't actually know why sprinkles are called jimmies?).
I started out with my normal old challah recipe. I floured the dough lightly to prevent the colors from running too much. Then, I just dumped on the sprinkles.
Then I just braided as normal.
Before baking, I decided there weren't nearly enough sprinkles, so I added a few more after egg-wash and baked as normal.
While we on vacation last week, the Hazz and I stopped at a paint-your-own-pottery place. I made a Shalom door plate, and the Hazz made a word bubble plate with, "V'ahavta larekha kamokha. (Love your neighbor as yourself.)" While it will probably one day end up on the wall, it made a great display plate!
Here it is in all it's glory! Yum!
What are YOU doing to celebrate Purim (and extend perhaps extend the holiday like we are)?
A Frelichen Purim!
