Passover Recipe - 24/04/2008
 
A Black Eyed Peas, Spinach and Lemon Recipe for Sephardic Jews for Passover, and for anyone to enjoy at any time.

A Black Eyed Peas, Spinach and Lemon Recipe for Sephardic Jews for Passover, and for anyone to enjoy at any time.

24th April is the 5th day of Passover. Jews celebrate Passover to commemorate the liberation of the Children of Israel, who departed so quickly that there was no time for their dough to rise, and the only provisions they took along were unleavened.

The celebrations last for seven or eight days. Chametz is not eaten during Passover. (Chametz refers either to a grain product that is already fermented or a substance that can cause fermentation - any product that contains wheat, barley, oats, spelt or rye that has leavened (risen)).

Chametz is symbolic of arrogance and on Passover Jews empty themselves of all chametz so that they can be humble. Ashkenazi Jews do not eat legumes either, but many Sephardic Jews do, so this recipe is for Sephardic Jews for Passover, and for anyone to enjoy at any time.
