Peach Farfel for Passover – crowd favorite

 My friend Audrey gave this recipe to me many years ago and it has gone on to be a Kolen Family staple and favorite. It is always on our Passover table.  Actually, this year, I had thought I had it scanned into my computer (under Passover Recipes) and I couldn’t find it. Lucky for me  my friend Carol always makes it and her family loves it, so here it is. Recipes are like that–they tend to spread out to a wide group of people, so they usually don’t get lost. Sort of the reasoning behind this website as I now will have all my recipes under one tidy little roof! Enjoy this one; it is sweet and makes for a delicious side dish with poultry or beef. This has always been a crowd pleaser. I know, the amount of eggs is obscene on this holiday! This one has 7 eggs in it!!!!!

Thanks again Audrey!

Ingredients:

1 box matzoh farfel (also available in a canister now)

2 15 oz. cans sliced peaches

7 eggs

2 cups sugar

1 tsp. salt

2 sticks margarine, melted

2 tsp. vanilla

4 cups hot water

Directions:

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Place dry farfel in a bowl, then pour hot water over it. Let stand until absorbed.

In a separate bowl, combine eggs, syrup from peaches, salt, sugar, margarine, and vanilla. Add farfel and combine well. In a well sprayed 9 x 12 baking dish, pour 1/2 the mixture, then arrange a layer of peaches on top. Add remaining mixture on top, then top with remaining peaches. Sprinkle with just a bit of cinnamon if you’d like. Bake for 1 hour at 350 degrees. Serve hot out of oven, or room temp. It is quite delicious at room temperature, if you don’t have the room in your oven, and it makes for a pretty awesome leftover.

Can be assembled, cooked 1/2 way through, then cooked the rest of the way through on the day of the holiday.
