Challah for 'Erev Shabbat
Challah, a traditional Sabbath's Eve bread
I love challah! Beautiful. Sweet. Soft (when fresh!). Fun to braid. Delicious to eat!
I baked challah this morning, something I haven't made since before summer. Even though Sabbath hasn't started yet (tonight), the children and I pulled off a few pieces of fresh warm challah for a mid-morning snack. :)
We all watched this video (again!) to refresh my memory of exactly how to do the 6-strand braid, which makes a loaf like the one pictured above. It's not difficult to make, and I love the extra-special look! :)
Challah really does taste as wonderful as it looks!
A day of rest, a reminder of our Creator, His creation, and His deliverance. Sabbath is sweet, with or without challah! :)
