This was a treat that was served every holiday be it a, Thanksgiving, Hannukah or the sabbath. My mother had a wooden bowl and mezzaluna blade that she used to prepare this dish. The set was at least fifty years old. Unfortunatley it has been lost through the years. This dish is probably the most remembered food I can remember making and when I was very young it was the first sharp tool I was allowed to use.
