15 Recipes to Master for Passover
Pass the charoset, y’all.
Pull out your vacuum and clear out those cupboards. It’s that time again. Time to rid your home of every piece of bread and speck of crumbs in anticipation of a matzo-filled seven (or eight) days.
For many of us, Passover Seder preparation involves digging in your family recipe box for Bubby’s brisket recipe, and, in the unleavened week that follows, Jewish homes across the South will consume more matzo pizzas than we can count.
