Why I Love This Recipe

This dish is rated Pareve and can be eaten with meat or milk meals.



Episode Summary :

On our first episode Bubbe gives her secret to her famous Jelly Jammies. Does she use grape or cherry?

Show Notes:

The show starts out with Avrom introducing the show with the 3 magic words "Feed Me Bubbe."

After some music Bubbe explains today's episode.

Today she is going to prepare her grandchildren's favorite snack. It is very easy to prepare.

Her mother used to make strudel which took a lot of time and energy and a lot of experience. But who has time today for all of that. This is how Bubbe's Famous Jelly Jammies were created.

If you don't want to call it Jelly Jammies you can always call it easy fruit squares.

The recipe and procedure is available here.

The Yiddish word of today is BUBBE which means GRANDMOTHER.

The recipe should make about 16 squares and freezes well.
