Double-Caramel Flan | This gorgeous custard is chock-full of caramel, from the creamy center to the deep, dark layer on top, while a higher-than-usual ratio of egg yolks and cream makes it insanely rich. #passover #passoverrecipes #dessert #passoverdesserts #recipes #flan #carameldesserts

The Seder Plate | Sephardic-Style Charoset With Dried Fruit and Nuts - Unlike the Ashkenazi version, Sephardic-style charoset incorporates dried fruits rather than fresh apples, and a wider variety of spices and nuts. Ours blends a red wine–simmered mixture of dates, dried apricots, and raisins with roasted almonds, plus a bit of fragrant orange blossom water. Chopping up the nuts and fruit in a food processor speeds things up, but make sure to leave a few chunks for texture.

Sephardic-Style Charoset With Dried Fruit and Nuts

interesting sephardic style charoset that I wanted to try for passover, but since I still have left over orange blossom water and hundreds of boxes of matzo.

Creamy Whipped Greek Yogurt | Looking for a tasty dairy dessert that's about as easy as it gets? Whipping Greek yogurt using a stand mixer may sound a little too simple, but the texture it takes on—like a hybrid of thick yogurt and fluffy whipped cream—is to die for, especially when layered with fresh or roasted fruit. Heavy cream thickens the yogurt, while a touch of honey lends gentle sweetness and rosewater or vanilla bean adds flavor. #passover #passoverdesserts #passoverrecipes

Creamy Whipped Greek Yogurt

Creamy whipped Greek yogurt—a cross between airy whipped cream and dense yogurt. Chill and serve with fresh fruit as a parfait, or use as a topping for pound cake, pie, or French toast

Apple Compote | An old-fashioned apple compote makes an elegant dish on its own, or a perfect accompaniment to other desserts, whether it's Passover or not. #passover #passoverdesserts #passoverrecipes #applecompote #dessertrecipes

Apple Compote

With carefully shaped slices of fruit and an aromatic poaching syrup flavored with caramel, cider, and spices, this old-fashioned apple compote proves that attention to detail can elevate even the humblest recipe into something wonderful.

The Dinner Plate | Crispy Pan-Seared Salmon Fillets - Sous vide is a fine way to cook salmon, too, but if you don't have the requisite equipment or if you're short on time, good old-fashioned pan-searing makes a wonderful simple entrée. The key is carefully drying the fish to keep it from sticking and to get the skin—the best part!—extra crisp. Cooking the fillets most of the way through on one side will heat the fish more gently, keeping it moist and tender. #passover #passoverrecipes…

Crispy Pan-Seared Salmon Fillets

Perfect pan-seared salmon should have crisp skin, moist and tender flesh, and fat that has been fully rendered.

The Dinner Plate | Jewish-Style Braised Brisket With Onions and Carrots - Brisket is a notoriously difficult cut to cook—braise it too long, and it'll be tender but dry; not long enough, and it'll come out moist but tough. Our solution is to cover the meat while it braises to trap in the moisture, then submerge the sliced brisket in the warm braising liquid, so it reabsorbs the flavorful juices, before serving. Braising sweet onions and carrots along with the meat yields a classic…

Jewish-Style Braised Brisket With Onions and Carrots

Jewish brisket can be tender or moist, but usually not both, since the long cooking required to tenderize the meat also dries it out. This recipe includes steps that help maximize juiciness while still delivering fork-tender meat.

Passover Pareve Apple Cake

Flourless Orange-Saffron Cake | Like the honey cake just above, this Middle Eastern–inspired flourless cake is made with ground almonds, but its unbelievable moistness comes from an unexpected addition: puréed whole oranges. Softening them in the microwave makes it easier to blend them, rinds and all, into a paste, which we then whisk into the other ingredients. Vibrant red saffron threads and a honey glaze give the dessert wonderful color and fragrance. #passover #passoverdesserts…

Flourless Orange-Saffron Cake

Flourless Orange Saffron Cake ~ Whole pureed oranges make this the moistest cake I've ever had. Ground almonds and a honey syrup complete the Middle Eastern theme. Maree sez: I actually think the syrup was unnecessary.

The Dinner Plate | Stovetop Tzimmes With Carrots and Raisins - If you think of this old Passover standby as nothing more than a mound of mushy, oversweetened carrots, it's time to revisit it with a fresh recipe. Orange juice keeps the flavor bright, and just a dab of honey highlights the carrots' natural sweetness. A mix of cardamom and cinnamon gives the dish added complexity.

The Dinner Plate | Sous Vide Chicken Breast - No roasted meats during Passover? No problem—cooking chicken breast sous vide, followed by a quick sear on the stovetop, ensures that the meat will end up delightfully juicy and tender inside, with nicely browned and crisp skin outside. It can be time-consuming, sure, but almost all of that time is hands-off, freeing you up to prepare other dishes.  #passover #passoverrecipes #chickenrecipes #sousvidechicken
