I have been asked by a local woman who recently married a Lebanese husband for a recipe for Kurban, the arabic style communion bread.  I usually make the Greek style loaves and do not have a recipe for the arabic style bread. Do any of you have a recipe for it?

As far as I know, the recipe for Orthodox prosphora is basically the same: white flour, yeast, water, and a pinch of salt, and nothing else. Variation between churches is more in the shape and size of the loaf, not what it's made of.

I've noticed that our antidoron tastes slightly sweet. Does anyone else notice this? If so, what ingredient is the cause for this?

Are you receiving antidoron (Blessed Bread) or an artos from an artoklasia (Blessing of Bread)?   Huh

A piece of the artos tends to be significantly larger and sweeter than the Blessed Bread.

 I am referring to what is handed out after DL, which I always thought was antidoron. The piece sizes are usually about 1 in squares. When is one likely to encounter artos?

Yes, all Orthodox prosphora follow the same conventions: white flour, water, yeast and (optional) salt.  The more obvious difference is that many Arab Christians follow the earlier St. James liturgical tradition of a single layer, flat loaf, whereas the Byzantine tradition tends towards two-layer loaves.

Some people add sugar to sweeten loaves (which is not proper, but try telling Grandma what to do and see how far that gets you), but you can get the natural sweetness of the flour by using the 'boiled flour method.'

It's all on my website: http://www.prosphora.org

The Blessing of the Bread commemorates the miracle of Christ feeding 5,000 men with 5 loaves of bread and 2 fish.
