Spy Wednesday “Judases”

I hadn’t heard of Wednesday being called “Spy Wednesday” before this year. But what I learned is that it’s called that because this is the day that Judas was paid 30 pieces of silver to spy on Jesus, which led to his betrayal. There are some recipes and activities geared around this particular day, and this is one that I am hoping to make and do today. Here is a description of it from a beautiful blog I just found today as well, Catholic Cuisine:

Judasas” are served with honey at breakfast in Czechoslovakia. These are breakfast cakes of twisted dough, made to look like rope, suggesting the fate of Judas the Betrayer, who “went and hanged himself” in remorse after he had identified Jesus to His enemies. Honey is considered a preventive against disaster (Easter the World Over by Priscilla Sawyer Lord and Daniel J. Foley, 1971, p. 58).
