Baked Apples in Oven

Ingredients:
8 red apples or another variety
8 tablespoons sugar
1/2 cup liqueur
1 small cup of brandy
1/2 cup chopped walnuts
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 cup vegan pastry cream

Instructions:
Peel the apples and with the special tool, open a hole in the middle removing their seeds. Spread the apples in the pan and add the liqueur. Mix sugar, nuts and cinnamon and with a teaspoon fill the holes of apples. Bake at 180 degrees for about an hour, covered with foil. Before you remove it from the oven, sprinkle with a small cup of brandy. After they are cool, whip the pastry cream, so it will become whipped cream (chantilly). Let it cool in the refrigerator. Then, garnish the apples and serve.

In the same way, you can do quinces or pears. The only difference is that you cut into slices the fruit and pour the nuts when you garnish the whipped cream. The recipe can be done without the whipped cream as well.

The recipe is from the book:

Cuttlefish Baked in Oven (Plaki)

We  clean, wash and cut the cuttlefish in pieces. We put the oil, the parsley, the cuttlefish, the lemon, the orange peel and some water in a wide pot.
We let the food boil for a while. If it is necessary  we curd the sauce by diluting two spoonfuls of corn flour in a little water and then we add this mixture to the food and we mix it, so that it won’t be lumpy.

The Symbolism of Objects Held by Saints in Byzantine Iconography

The Symbolism of Objects Held by Saints in Byzantine Iconography

In this article you will read about the symbolism of various objects in Byzantine Iconography, such as the cross and the Church held by the Saints, the open palms, the Gospel, the scrolls, the rod, medical objects, as well as the choices of colors. Orthodox hagiography reveals to Christians the unearthly, which transcends the boundaries of our physical world. It functions as a way of communication and seeks to highlight the new world that will come with the Kingdom of God. This can be expressed through the icons of the Saints, where characteristics such as schematization, simplicity and differentiation prevail.
