We continue to support Israel with your help despite the war. Shipments may be delayed.

Dear supporters,

Israel is facing a murderous war of terror, marking its gravest challenge in the past 70 years.


Terrorists from the Gaza Strip have invaded Israel, killing hundreds, injuring thousands, and kidnapping people, including women and children. We are in mourning but united.


Members of Lev Haolam and our partners were drafted into service. In their absence, we're redoubling our efforts to support those who remain on the home front. We continue to work, collect and ship boxes.


Your support and solidarity, as we navigate this tragedy, means the world to us.


Due to a temporary halt in air traffic, you may experience delays, but rest assured your parcel will arrive!


In times like these, it's evident that we're more than just a community; we're family. As part of the family, our combined strength will pull us through.


Thank you for your support. We'll keep you posted on what's happening here.


Stay strong. Stay connected. Stay with Israel!

Come and make an Israeli-inspired Honey Pecan Pie!

Pecan Pie is a well-loved dessert around the world. Here in Israel, we always need to create and do things differently. So here is a Pecan Pie with an Israeli twist! Honey-infused Pecan Pie!
The classic pecan pie is a pie traditionally consisting of pecan nuts mixed with a batter of butter, sugar, and eggs. There are plenty of variations, including chocolate brownie, but the classic pecan pie has always proved to be the most popular. Well, it was, until we discovered the Israeli version! Pecan Pie is a specialty of the Southern United States, a region to which pecans are native. According to research, this pie is over one hundred years old, and the first published pecan pie recipe was in a copy of Harpar's Bazaar from 1886! Pecan Pie contains all the qualities needed for the perfect dessert. It is crunchy, sweet, and gooey all at the same time! Plus it's very simple to make! It's no wonder that in the US, pecan pie is often served at festive meals and family get-togethers!

We are proud to introduce you to our Israeli take on pecan pie, a honey-infused version that adds a delicate and indulgent sweetness to an already delicious dish!

Are you ready to make Israeli-style Honey Pecan Pie?! Gather your ingredients and let's get baking!

Serves:
  • 4-6 servings

Ingredients:
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1 cup of chopped caramel-coated pecans
  • 1 cup of light corn syrup
  • 1/4 cup of white sugar
  • 1/4 cup of packed brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons of melted butter
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • 1/4 cup of runny honey
  • 1 9-inch unbaked pastry shell
Method:
  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). In a large bowl, mix the eggs, pecans, corn syrup, white sugar, half of the melted butter, vanilla extract, and salt. Stir together until they are well incorporated. This mixture will be your pie filling.
  2. Next, pour the filling into the unbaked pastry shell. Make sure the filling is evenly distributed. This will ensure that every bite of the pie has a perfect balance of flavors. Place the pie in the preheated oven and bake it for approximately 30 minutes. Keep an eye on the pie to ensure it doesn’t overcook.
  3. While the pie is baking, it’s time to prepare your pecan topping. In a small saucepan, melt the rest of the butter over medium heat. Stir in the brown sugar and the honey until they are well combined. Once the mixture has reached a smooth consistency, gently fold in the pecans, ensuring they are evenly coated.
  4. After the pie has been baked for 30 minutes, remove it from the oven. Carefully spoon the prepared pecan topping over the partially cooked filling. Spread it out evenly, covering the entire surface of the pie. Return the pie to the oven and bake for an additional 15-20 minutes, or until a knife inserted into the center comes out clean.
  5. Once the pie is baked to perfection, remove it from the oven and allow it to cool completely on a wire rack. Once cooled, you can refrigerate any leftovers (if there are any!) to enjoy later.
