This is a Passover recipe but it can be eaten at any time of the year. Passover is the festival commemorating the Hebrews’ escape from enslavement in Egypt. You can read more about it here. Passover. Observant Jews will not eat any sort of bread or grain product during the 8 days of the holiday. For those in the UK and Europe I don’t think you can get Matzo Farfel but you can definitely get Matzos so what you would have to do is crush them up because that’s what Matzo Farfel is…crushed up matzos. I know Rakusen’s is a British brand of matzos. To see how I make my Peach Kugel, keep on reading!
1 lb. Matzo Farfel
