Cooking Ideas: Manna

Originally Posted by Neil MacQueen: has a very good article about all the thing manna "COULD BE". A lot of debate and theories about it, some of which is interesting to share with kids.

Many 'modern' recipes are gourmet manna. Biblical manna was apparently something like a sweet hard substance that could be pounded and baked into a wafer). The Coriander in the recipe is a nod to the scripture which says it was "something like" coriander seed.

The Talmud commentary said it tasted honey to the young, bread to the youth, and oil to the aged.

Recipe 1: Simple Manna

Here's one recipe, though I doubt the Israelites used eggs!
It does produce sweet wafers.

3 eggs
1 c. flour
½ tsp. coriander powder
1 c. honey
1/8 tsp. salt
½ tsp. vanilla

Preheat oven to 350°. (Grind coriander seeds to powder if they come whole.) Beat eggs and honey; add vanilla. Sift together flour, salt, and coriander powder. Mix all together. Spread thinly on cookie pan. Bake 10-15 minutes. Cut into squares.

Recipe 2: Manna Recipe (found on internet)
1 Large Moses
10 000 Angry hungry followers
1 Splash of Lord of the Universe
Mix together in a hostile environment and bake in a moderate to hot desert for a month.

...and it made me think it was an interesting REFLECTION for ALL cooking workshops. Making a "recipe" for following through on your lesson's meaning.

Recipe Card for Following God through the Wilderness

Write the cooking recipe on one side of Recipe Cards, and the "meaning/reminder/reflection" recipe below it. Give them suggestions of various "good things to have for a journey with God" and let them decide on measurements and wording.

One sweet thing
One thing that will keep you healthy and strong
One thing that reminds you of these parts of the story: ______ and ______
A spice to give you energy or enthusiasm
Something that reminds you of God's care
Something that reminds you of patience
How to cook it
How to share it

"Recipe Card for Following God in the Wilderness"

Created by the kids during cooking workshop:

1 Cup of Realizing God is with you, always
2 Tablespoons of trust that you will reach your goal if you follow God
1 Pound of prayer. Kneed this in every morning.
1 ounce of faith, because even a little bit of faith can help you move and get around mountains in your way (according to Jesus)
1/4 Cup Honey, because the Word is sweet to us like honey (Ps 119:103)
1 Cup of Refreshing Water from the Marah Well (no longer bitter, thanks to God)

Mix with church, worship, and other people who can support you on your journey.

Add Spices to taste and see that the Lord is good.

Bake for a long time. Good things come to they who wait and endure.

Share with others because that's what Christians are supposed to do.
