Algerian Fruit Medley (Chalda Fakya)
We are in the second ‘A’ country and it is: Algeria. Yay!!
This country has been in mind lately.Thanks to Noel Piper talking about Lilias Trotter in her book “Faithful Women and their Extraordinary God.”
As I continue to research on Algeria, one people group which I never knew until know is sticking out to me: Berbers of Algeria.
‘Berbers’, this name was given by early Romans who came to the country centuries ago, to the native Algerians of that time. Berbers have been historically nomads and preferred themselves to be called “Imazighen” (Free people).Islam is the religion of the land however Christianity had blossomed here centuries ago. Berbers have identified themselves with Islam, old rooted tradition as well as Christianity over the time. Many Kabyle Berbers are seeking Christ today.
- Pray that Christ will reveal Himself to Kabyle Berbers.
- Pray that Bible will be accessible to them in their language.
- Pray those evangelists who are reaching to this people group will be strengthening.
As i was looking for the food of this country,i came across the fruit salad.I learnt that in most Algerian homes, eating fresh fruit after the meal is very common.Fruit bowl is placed at the dinner table.It is customary for each person sitting on the table to peel their fruit and eat.So we started our Algerian tour with refreshing fruit bowl !
What makes this fruit salad “Algerian” fruit salad ?
Algerians prefers aromatic fruit salad with touch of cinnamon and vanilla 🙂
Original recipe idea from : Holidays of the Wold Cookbook for students
