Tobar an Léinn is a small 6 teacher primary school located in the village of Raheen, Co. Laois, Ireland.
We are learning all about Egypt and the lives of the people who live there in SESE this month. We learned that khoshaf is an Egyptian dessert made from dried fruits. Ms. Hayes got some dried apricots, raisins, cranberries and figs and mixed them together in a big bowl. Then she sprinkled A LOT of sugar on top (1 and a half cups to be precise). Finally, she poured about 2 cups of boiling water on top of the mixture and left it all to soak overnight in the fridge. We all got to taste some the next day with delicious custard. Some of us were big fans, the apricots especially went down a treat. Mark loved the figs!
However, it was not to everyone's taste as the texture of some of the fruits are a bit strange. Having said that, we're glad we tried something new and lived like an Egyptian for a little while!
