High Holiday Timeless Recipes

Nanny's Traditional Holiday Recipes as given to Helene Urbaitel

My mother in law, Lillian Urbaitel (affectionately known as Nanny) was born and raised in Poland.  She came to the USA  with her husband in 1953 where they settled in New Jersey.  She was a wonderful cook and always made the Holiday dinners.  Here are 2 of her fabulous recipes that I have passed down to my family and hopefully will live forever.

Apple Roses Treat From Cooking With Manuela

You don't need to be a pastry chef to bake this deliciously tempting rose-shaped dessert. It tastes just like apple pie.  And it looks a lot like a beautiful red rose.  Made with naturally sweet apple slices, sprinkled with cinnamon, and rolled up in a perfectly crispy puff pastry.

Savta's Green Stuff

by Linda Zimmerman (and Savta Rabbah)

 

Rabbi Mark is very particular about his desserts. He is not a fan of most cakes, unless it is a creamy chocolate one, and usually prefers ice cream. But his all time favorite parve dessert that his mother always made for special occasions is Green Stuff. I am sure many of you have a version of this jello concoction but in the Zimmerman household and that of his siblings and all of the grandchildren this will always be known as Savta's Green Stuff. If you are brave you can use raw egg which is how Savta always made it. I use Egg Beaters.

Rosh Hashanah Memory from Rene Montaigne

One of my favorite Rosh Hashanah memories is my grandmother’s (Buba’s) Teiglach. She always made them in a blue enamel pot that was placed on the oil space heater in her dining room.  When everyone came in from shul for lunch, the first thing that they did was take a teiglach out of the pot.  After Buba passed away several years ago, my brother ended up with the blue pot.   Since I make the teiglach every year and send them to family, I felt I should have the blue pot.  After many years of friendly bickering, I now have the blue pot.  The teiglach actually taste more like hers, since I have been using the blue pot.

Cheryl Garfinkel - Grandmother Ruth Cotton's Kugel

Every year, in my small Massachusetts hometown, after the 1st day of Rosh Hashanah services, we walked the one block to my grandparents’ home. My grandmother, Ruth Cotton, prepared a beautiful holiday table laden with wonderful food for her children and grandchildren.  She was an amazing cook, but this kugel was always the standout hit for us grandkids. Now, I always make this pineapple kugel for the holidays, and my own kids (grandkids, I hope) love it too. In fact, I have 14 Cotton cousins and most of us still make this kugel today. It definitely tastes better with the chicken fat, but melted margarine works too.  Clearly, this is not health food.  It is once a year holiday food.  Enjoy!
