Pineapples for Peace
A great website I came across recently unites recipes from Israel and Palestine.
‘Palestinian and Jewish Recipes for Peace: Celebrating 12 years of sustained relationship-building and outreach’ was put together by the Jewish-Palestinian Living Room Dialogue Group of San Mateo County, California 2004.There was even a recipe for Hearty Corn Muffins which used pineapple.
Here are some more recipes that I've found. They were all delicious!
