Making pita

Ever since we took Abigail to Kibbutz Gezer, where they had an activity that included making pita, I’ve been thinking that I’d like to make pita at home. I’ve done it once in the past and it came out great, but then I lost the recipe and couldn’t find another one that looked worth trying.

Here are some of Abigail’s pictures – she really enjoyed it! Abigail rolling out the pita

They made sure to keep the kids safe – only the taboon guy got close to it.Abigail handing the pita to the taboon guy

Mr. Taboon also made sure the pita didn’t get burnt. Pita

Too bad they couldn’t protect the pita from the destructive things a four-year-old can do – in this case, putting chocolate spread on it. What a waste! Ruining the pita with chocolate spread. Yuck. Anyway, when Ohad said today that he preferred I use the outdoor barbeque to make chicken, I figured I’d finally use the cheapo wok we bought and make more pita. (You flip the wok upside down on the barbeque. Works like a charm.) Instead, I ended up finding a recipe that actually recommended you make the pita in the oven and I didn’t feel like standing in front of the barbeque anyway, so I made them in the oven.


The recipe makes 8. We were able to take 2 to freeze – the others all got eaten straight out of the oven.

The kids kept asking me how you make the pockets. You don’t. They just magically appear :-)

Looks fantastic. Yum!

Abigail is beautiful, btw. You have a gorgeous family.

funny - only 2 made it to freeze... sounds like something else entirely... more appropriate for your other blog.
