(Contestant) Passover traditions, Jack, for the win.
(Jack) On all other nights, unleavened or leavened bread is eaten, but this bread is eaten only at Passover.”
(Contestant) What is Matzo?
For children at the Passover holiday, the seder teaches them the history of the Israelite’s exodus from Egypt. At the center of the seder table is a plate of three matzot. They are symbolic of the moral lessons of humility and faith in the face of slavery and freedom. But most sacred is the presence of the children at the seder table, as they remind everyone of the sweetness of life and blessings of survival.
This is why we make Caramelized Matzo Crunch – for the children. It’s miraculously simple to prepare – melt, butter and brown sugar, pour it over dry boards and bake. Out of the oven, add chocolate, nuts, salt and other flavourful delights. When it cools, Matzo Crunch is c-r-u-n-c-h-y, sweet and addictive. I thought dry matzo spread with salty butter to be my weakness. Now that I know sweetened, salty, chocolatey matzo, I understand addiction at another level. Sorry to do this to you, friends.
