Friday, April 28, 2014

Good Friday is a religious holiday observed primarily by Christians commemorating the crucifixion of Jesus Christ and his death at Calvary. The holiday is observed during Holy Week as part of the Paschal Triduum on the Friday preceding Easter Sunday, and may coincide with the Jewish observance of Passover. It is also known as Holy Friday, Great Friday, Black Friday, or Easter Friday, though the latter properly refers to the Friday in Easter week.

National Animal Crackers Day

Who doesn't love the crunch and sweetness of an animal cracker? These fun little crackers are usually in the shape of circus or zoo animals such as elephants, lions, tigers, bears, and monkeys.

Animal-shaped crackers were first brought to the United States during the late 1800’s. The demand for these treats skyrocketed so bakers began to produce them domestically.

Stauffer's Biscuit Company was the first company to produce animal crackers in 1871 in York, Pennsylvania. Other local bakeries soon came together under the National Biscuit Company, or "Nabisco Brands." It was not until 1902 though that the animal cracker's box débuted its "Barnum's Animals" circus theme.

Did you know that since their start in 1903, there have been 37 different animals included in Barnum's Animal Crackers? Today more than 40 million packages of animal crackers are sold each year around the world. To celebrate National Animal Crackers Day, enjoy a box (or two) of some delicious Barnum's Animal Crackers!

April 19, 2014 - National Garlic Day
Garlic is a revlative of the Onion and chives. Garlic is one of the most popular spice used in cooking and can be found in cultural dishes all over the world. Garlic sprouts can also be used to season your dishes. Garlic also has medicinal qualities such as aiding in treating the common cold, strep throat, lung infections and fungal infections.

Garlic originated in China. Today China is still the largest producer of garlic, followed by India, South Korea, Russia and the US. Most of the garlic in the US is grown in Gilroy, California which wrongly calls itself the ‘Garlic capital of the world”. Garlic is considered to be easy to grow and can grow year round in mild climates. One advantage to growing garlic is that they will not be attacked by pests.

When buying garlic choose only firm cloves with no dark, powdery patches as this may be mold. Store garlic cloves in a cool dry place such as a kitchen drawer. They can for several weeks, if green sprouts begin to grow out of the cloves it is time to throw them out. Do not store whole cloves in the refrigerator, peel the cloves and keep them in the refrigerator soaked in vinegar.

Parsley is thought to prevent ‘garlic breath’.
