”Almond macaroons are a definitive Passover food”

delicious. reader Miriam Lewis wrote to us to tell us about these sweet almondy treats, traditionally eaten during the eight-day Jewish festival of Passover (this year 19-27 April). This heirloom recipe was passed down to Miriam through her mother’s family

Passover commemorates the Jewish people’s hasty Exodus from Egypt. The Bible tells that this left no time for even the bread to rise, so yeast-leavened and most wheat products are symbolically avoided during Passover, and substituted with ground almonds and potato flour. Most British Jews from an Ashkenazic (Central or Eastern European) background, even those who don’t often eat biscuits, will find themselves unable to drink a cup of tea at Passover without a plate of these almond macaroons on the table to at least look at.
