Kosher Purim Recipes.

Purim is celebrated on the 14th day of Adar. It is the Jewish holiday that commemorates the deliverance of the Persian Jews from the plot of the evil Haman to exterminate them, as recorded in the biblical Book of Esther.

It is traditional to eat Oznei Haman (English: Haman's Eears) on Purim filled with poppy seed, nuts, dates, halva and anything else you can think of.

The word Oznei Haman is Hebrew, but the Yiddish word, favored by Jews of European origin, call this wonderful cake Hamentaschen.

For a fun alternative, you may want to fill your Mishloach Manot with some home-baked goodies. Place a few of these biscuits into a clear cellophane bag, seal with some pretty ribbon and make this the center piece of your Mishloach Manot. Your family and friends will appreciate the care you put into their gift.  Here are some of our favorites:
