Recipe: Aromatic apple jam

By Linda Dangoor, September 23, 2011

The addition of rosewater and cardamom makes this jam wonderfully fragranced. It is my mother's recipe, which she makes for Rosh Hashanah. You can use Golden Delicious or Royal Gala apples.


● 200ml water
● 730g granulated sugar
● 1 kg apples, peeled, cored, seeded and quartered
● 7 whole cardamom pods
● 1 tbsp rosewater
● 1 lemon, juiced

Recipe: Hadji bada

By Linda Dangoor, April 15, 2011

Special almond macaroons, deliciously chewy with a hint of rosewater, are traditionally made for the Passover feast. We call them hadji bada. They are so popular we make them now all year round. My Aunt Eileen's recipe contains walnuts as well as almonds, double the amount of eggs and are deliciously chewy.


● 500g blanched almonds, very finely ground
