The changing foods and diets of Passover

"With supermarket shelves bulging with Passover muffins, Passover granola and even Passover breadsticks, it's hard to grasp that for much of history, this holiday's fare was limited to the simple and home-made. In the shtetl, Passover preparations began at Chanukah when housewives rendered chicken and goosefat into schmaltz,... Read more...

Kahlua Kosher?

Any word on whether Kahlua will be getting their Hashgacha back? Any news for the future?
EE Atlanta, GA

A very good question regarding an old time favorite! Neither the CRC (Chicago Rabbinical Council) nor the AKC (Atlanta Kashruth Commission) currently recommend this product and they have no information regarding future kosher certification. We suggest the following products as excellent substitutes for Kahlua:  Sabra Coffee Liqueur, Binyamina Coffee Liqueur or Starbucks Coffee Liqueur. All are parve.

December Newsletter, The Wink, Drawing Prize Winner

Congratulations to our December Newsletter drawing prize winner, David Mitnick of Baltimore Maryland.

David has won KosherEye’s very first giveaway, the Hourglass Cold Brew Coffee Maker.

"I look forward to receiving The Hourglass… It looks so interesting online and for Shabbos is probably a great improvement over my options now", said David.

I follow tons of kosher (and regular) food blogs and love Twitter for this as well.  I just posted my TURDUCKEN adventure on Facebook and love spending time in the kitchen.

My favorite gadget?  I love my Weber Genesis Grill with over 507 square inches of cooking space. We'll cook chicken for a crowd or indirectly roast whole chickens and even turkeys.  Adding soaked wood chips imparts an amazing flavor.  Before we shovel a walk way to the cars, I've been known to make sure the path to the grill is clear!  One day, I'll get a real smoker and try my hand at smoking ribs and a pastrami the right way!

My favorite recipe is surprising, even to me, because it is such a traditionally Jewish item.  It is a potato kugel that stays so perfectly white (I hate when kugel comes out brown) and is delicious each and every time.  The key is, after cubing the potatoes, keep them in water until you are ready to add them to the blender (and don't try this in a food processor- blender is the best way). Here is the recipe:

David Mitnick's Potato Kugel recipe:

Ingredients:

4 large potatoes, peeled and cubed
1 onion, cubed
1/2 cup oil
4 eggs
1  1/2 teaspoons salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper

Directions:

Preheat oven to 450 degrees.

Grease baking pan and place in oven for 5 minutes.

Soak cubed potatoes and onion in cold water.

Combine all ingredients including drained potatoes and onions in blender and blend until very smooth. Take baking dish out of the oven and immediately pour mixture into the hot pan (so it sizzles) and bake at 450 degrees for 1/2-hour. Reduce to 350 degrees and bake for an additional 1/2-hour. 

If you need a larger quantity, after you have poured the first batch into the pan, make another batch in the blender and pour over top of the already baking part.

2010 SAVEUR 100 List

Guess what is number 82 on the 2010 SAVEUR 100 List? Yes, it is one of your grandmother's favorite ingredients! To view the rest of the list www.saveur.com

"Schmaltz makes everything taste better. That staple of Jewish cooking — rendered chicken fat flavored with a little onion — goes into all my favorite dishes: matzo brei (fried matzo with caramelized onion), mashed potatoes, and chopped chicken liver, to name a few. I often render my own schmaltz, after asking my butcher to save a few pounds of chicken fat and skin for me. It's the epitome of slow food; I simmer the ingredients in a large pot over low, low heat for hours and ladle out the crispy bits, or gribenes, that float to the top. I save most of those cracklings to add to chopped liver; my kids always polish off the rest."
Jonathan Labovich, San Rafael, California
