"The tradition of Italian cooking is that of the matriarch. This is the cooking of grandma. She didn't waste time thinking too much about the celery. She got the best celery she could and then she dealt with it."--Mario Batali

Do you know the word "shiterein"? Well this is how I learned how to cook. From my Mom, from her Mom, who just knew when it was right. No measurements here, just directions. Test your skillls - see if you are a shiterein master too. It's in our genes - you may just surprise yourself. Plus, there's no way you can mess this one up, it's going to come out delicious no matter what you do - so have some fun with it.

The process is basically to wet the matzoh on both sides under running water. Break it up into a bowl. Pour over it the beaten eggs mixed with the oil, sugar, vanilla, little bit of salt, your raisins and walnuts and chopped apple, or just use any leftover charroset. Add some Manischewitz Sweet Concord grape wine if you like. Squeeze in lime or lemon juice to make it taste bright and a little tart. Once you add what ever ingredients you like, pour it over the matzoh and let it soak in. Pour into your baking pan and spread it out evenly. Now have some fun and take spoonfuls of preserves and dallop on top. Your choice on flavor or flavors, we tended to make one strip of each flavor, alternating flavors, made for a festive looking and colorful topping. Bake for 325 - 350, until done.

It's about to smell like Passover in here!

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
Don't like raisins, leave them out, prefer blueberries or cherries, put them in. This one is all up to you.

Make your notes and adjust for the next time your make it. A little Manischewitz over the top once it comes out of the oven never hurt either! Enjoy and Mazel Tov on becoming a shiterein master cook!!! :)
