Yom Ha’atzmaut Challah

For challah this week I turned to the Torah portion.  Then realized that it was the part of Leviticus about skin lesions and that would not make an appetizing challah.  Luckily, this week was also Yom Ha’atzmaut which is Israeli Independence Day, a much better idea for basing a challah.  So I brainstormed ideas. A flag challah was the first idea. And a map of Israel was the second.  However, the map idea seemed difficult, as which borders would I use?  So to avoid the political, I did the flag and a braid, with a strand of blue.

i wanted to try a new way to color the challah, so I made blue salt.  I took my blue dye and mixed it with coarse salt.  The outcome was beautiful!

The challah was salty, but not overly so, like a pretzel not a salt lick!
