Reprinted with permission by Gems in Israel
by Esthi David


MARZIPAN
 
Ingredients:
3.5 oz./100 gr. Blanched, Ground Almonds
3.5 oz./100 gr. Powdered Sugar
Few drops of Rose Water or Almond Extract
 
For larger quantities increase almond/sugar by ratio of 1:1
 
Preparation:
1. Process all the ingredients, using the metal blade of a food processor, until it forms into a dough-like consistency.
2. Form into small balls.


DATES STUFFED WITH HOMEMADE MARZIPAN

1. Slice (fresh or dried) dates lengthwise and remove the pits.
2. Fill each date with a ball of Marzipan and press between both sides of the date.


Serving Suggestions:
* Use dried apricot, which lends a bit of sourness to the Marzipan.
* You can also stuff fresh fruit, such as strawberries. However, these must be served immediately, as the sugar draws out the fruit juices.
* Dip the Marzipan balls in hot chocolate and let cool.
 
CHOCOLATE SAUCE:
 
Ingredients:

100 gr. Bittersweet Chocolate, break up the cubes, or chop.
ΒΌ cup Sugar
a bit of Milk
Margarine or Butter
 
Preparation:
1. Place chocolate, sugar and milk in a double boiler, or cook on a very low flame, stirring as the mixture melts.
2. Remove from stove, add margarine or butter and stir until it melts.

 
* The honey mentioned in the Seven Species traditionally refers to date honey, we have chosen to include a simple recipe using fresh or dried dates.
