* I simply put the apple in the food processor and shredded it that way. You could also use a grater.
I also found this pretty Morrocan-inspired salad. We currently have very sweet Sumo mandarins in season (low acid, seedless, extra juicy, jumbo size), so I might use these instead of oranges...
and I've just been told I HAVE to make D's mother's egg and lettuce salad recipe, with the deep green outer lettuce leaves and heaps of mayo.
So much for trying new recipes! What's everyone else making? I did read an interesting vegan pulled brisket recipe, made with underripe jackfruit, and veggo chicken schnitzel strips made from eggplant slices.
I found a delicious savoury honey recipe from Spain! This will go beautifully with the orange and olive salad, and will look pretty on the table.
From Claudia Roden's Spain:
Berenjenas con miel (aubergine fritters with honey) Serves 4-5
[Fritters could be very thin and crisp, but apparently this way absorbs less oil and is nicer.]
2 aubergines (about 600g)
About 600ml whole milk (enough to cover the aubergine slices)
Olive or sunflower oil for frying
Plain flour for dredging
Orange blossom honey, or other clear aromatic honey
Peel aubergines and cut them into 7.5 cm slices crossways.
Put them into a large bowl with the milk, press down with a small plate on top. Let them soak for 1-2 hours, then drain and discard the milk.
Preheat the oil in a large saucepan. Cover a plate with plenty of flour mixed with a sprinkling of salt. Turn the slices in this mix so they are completely covered with flour and shake them to remove the excess.
Deep-fry in oil that is sizzling but not too hot. Turn the slices over as soon as one side is done. This should take 3-4 minutes in total.
Cook the slices in batches, trying to keep the oil temperature as constant as possible. Then lift out the slices and drain on kitchen paper.
Serve hot with a dribble of honey. Allow everyone to help themselves to more
If you need to reheat, do so in the oven.
I've just decided not to bake mum's honey cake this time. I'll continue the Sephardi theme (which is also in our heritage, apparently but no-one's quite sure when), and bake this yummy Spanish version, included in an 1871 kosher cookbook by Mrs Esther Levy:
Orange honey cake
3 1/2 cups plain flour
1/3 cup oil
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 cup sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder (yes, the recipe repeats this. Use your judgement, I think)
I cup strong warm coffee
1teaspoon ground allspice, a touch of strong ginger
Pinch of salt
6oz orange juice, and add the finely grated zest if you can
Prepare 2 x 9-inch cake pans, set your oven at 300 degrees F.
Beat together the eggs, oil, sugar, and honey steadily until they are well mixed. Add warm coffee to the mixture. Carefully fold in the remaining ingredients until the mixture is smooth.
Pour the batter into the two prepared pans, bake for approx 70 mins. Cool before removing from pans.
If you wish, you can ice these with orange or chocolate icing.

Rosh ha Shana menu planning again - where's the year gone??? we're going to a vegetarian potluck...hostess will probably have her famous (weekly staple) pumpkin soup, so I don't think I can do my 7-veg borscht.
I am baking my gf sweet challah with apples and sultanas, and also gf spiced honey cake with cacao nibs.
But any ideas for what I can bring for mains? Todah rabah.
