I had a Slovak friend who used to give me one of these every Christmas. She's breaking oplatek in heaven now, God rest her soul. She also used to give me a Slovak Easter basket every year with the ornately painted eggs (pysanky?), the ham and traditional foods, and butter in the shape of a lamb! Too beautiful to eat. I started collecting them by keeping them in the freezer and, after several years, I had a frozen flock! LOL

I really miss that tradition. Pass with honey. "Good luck, good health, god's blessings!" All 13 + of us. Someday I will find a low gluten... perhaps...

I finally broke down and ate the last uneaten piece of the oplatek last week. It was stale and probably a little dusty and sitting on a plate on the dining room shelf. Blech. Had to eat it because it's blessed, you know. I couldn't just toss it out. Next yeast I'll insist it has to all get eaten during the ritual.

I guess someone should have wished you bon appetit on Chrismas Eve.  :LOL:
