Rosh Chodesh Adar II is just around the corner, and it is time to begin preparing for the gala holiday of Purim. Tradition calls for partaking of filled pastries, particularly of triangular shape. A classic example is hamantashen or Haman’s pockets, made of dough and filling -from sweet to savory.

Old-time Jewish recipes use mohn (poppy seed) or lekvar (prune) filling for delectable, melt in your mouth hamantashen. Lekvar jam is not always available for purchase. Make your own, using this easy to follow and inexpensive recipe.

Ingredients: rind of 1 lemon or small orange, grated 1 tablespoon lemon or orange juice 1/2 pound prunes 2 tablespoons sugar

Preparation: Place prunes in a saucepan, cover with water, and soak overnight (refrigerated).
Cook prunes in the soaking water, simmering till soft. Drain prunes well.
Place prunes in bowl of food processor, along with rind, juice, and sugar. Using metal blade, pulse till smooth. When cool, use to fill hamantaschen.
