ALL ABOUT HANUKKAH
Hanukkah - The Festival of Lights, is an eight-day Jewish Holiday beginning on the 25th day of the month of Kislev, which falls anytime from late November to late December. This year Hanukkah 2008 starts Sunday, December 21. Hanukkah celebrates the re-kindling of the Jewish Temple menorah at the time of the Maccabee rebellion. The festival is observed in Jewish homes by the kindling of lights on each night of the holiday - one on the first night, two on the second, and so on.
It is a Hanukkah tradition to play with the dreidel which is a four-sided spinning top that children play with on Hanukkah, Hannukah is also when people traditionally receive and give Hanukkah Gifts or money, known as Chanukah gelt. Some people prefer actual coins for Chanukah gelt but a popular fad is the coins made of chocolate! You can also use chocolate gelt to play the customary dreidel game on one of Chanukah nights. Chanukah gelt comes in a large variety, in silver or gold foil-wrapped dark or milk chocolate coins. We also offer an assortment of candy-filled dreidels.
Pecan pie is a popular food for the holiday season. So we have put together a few How To videos and recipes to help you make your own delicious Pecan pie.
Northern American:How To Make Pecan Pie
Makes one 10-inch pie
• 12 tablespoons (1 1/2 sticks) unsalted butter
• 1/2 cup honey
• 1 cup packed light-brown sugar
• 1/4 cup granulated sugar
• 4 cups pecan halves (about 1 pound)
• 3/4 cup heavy cream
• All-purpose flour, for dusting
• 1/2 Pate Brisee (Pie Dough)
In a 10-inch cast-iron skillet over medium heat, combine butter, honey, and sugars. Bring to a boil; let boil for 4 minutes. Add pecans and heavy cream, and boil 3 minutes more. Remove from heat, and set aside. Let stand about 30 minutes to cool. Using a wooden spoon, gently mound pecans and caramel slightly in center of skillet, leaving a gap between pecans and edge of skillet.
Preheat the oven to 425 degrees.with rack in the top third. On a clean, lightly floured work surface, roll out one disk of prepared chilled pastry to approximately a 7/8-inch-thick, 13-inch-diameter circle. Place the pastry over the skillet, carefully tucking the dough down against the edge of the skillet and around the edges of the mound of pecans. Trim the excess dough.
Place two rimmed baking sheets, one on top of the other, underneath the skillet to catch any drips while the pie bakes and to provide insulation for the caramel. Place skillet in the oven, and bake pie until the dough is just turning golden brown, about 10 minutes. Reduce heat to 350 degrees, and continue baking until the pastry is cooked through and the caramel is bubbling up around the edges of the skillet, about 30 minutes more.
Remove the pie from the oven, and let cool about 20 minutes. Carefully invert the pie onto a parchment-lined tray or baking sheet (the pie is easy to transfer to serving plate once it has been inverted). Be careful inverting pie; the caramel is very hot. If the pie does not release easily from skillet, heat the skillet over medium heat for about 30 seconds. Serve warm.
Chanukah Gelt (In Yiddish for money) is often distributed to children to enhance their enjoyment of Hanukkah. The amount is usually in small amount of coins, although grandparents or other relatives may give larger sums as an official Hanukkah gift. In Israel, Chanukah Gelt is known as D'mei Chanukah. Many Rabbis distribute coins to those who visit them during Hanukkah.
Today, chocolatiers like Oh! Nuts picked up on the gift coin concept by creating chocolate gelt, or chocolate shaped and stamped like coins and wrapped in gold or silver foil. Chocolate coins is often used in place of money in dreidel games or for Chanukah Gelt.
