Foods of the Time after Epiphany



Saint Blaise Sticks (February 3rd)

As mentioned elsewhere, Saint Blaise sticks (pan bendito) were traditionally distributed on the Feast of St. Blaise (February 3) and kept in the home as a ready malady for a sore throat. These blessed breads were especially popular in the Latin countries and central Europe.
