KCC During the Omer
In introducing this edition of the Kosher Cooking Carnival (KCC), I want to talk briefly about the Omer and roots of Judaism in agriculture. From Passover to Shavuot (7 weeks) we count each day. In the days of the Temple, barley was the first crop to be harvested. An omer of barley was offered each day at the Temple. Anyone have a recipe for barley bread? On the 50th day, wheat was offered, as the wheat harvest had begun.
