World Table Roasted Verde Salsa
Walking the aisles of supermarkets is like a treasure hunt for The KosherEye team. What can we find, taste and report to our readers? This week we discovered World Table Roasted Salsa Verde at Walmart in a 16 ounce jar, certified OU Kosher.
This salsa is made with tomatillas, jalapenos and cilantro - and has a gentle "kick". Such a treat as a dip for our tortilla chips!
Tomatillas - is a fruit we rarely serve, but is a popular ingredient in the recipes of our Mexican friends.Add a comment

As reported in the New York Times this week:
For avid whiskey lovers, few events are more eagerly anticipated than WhiskyFest, an enormous tasting that touches down in several American cities throughout the year. But when sponsors of the New York festival suddenly moved it last year from Tuesday to Friday and Saturday, many regulars were unable to attend.
An alternative arrived suddenly in the form of a new one-night event, held on the eve of WhiskyFest. Despite little time to advertise, it drew a crowd of 250 to its unlikely Manhattan location: the West Side Institutional Synagogue.
These whiskey devotees, it turned out, were Jews shut out of the big event because they observe the Sabbath. And to drive home the point of the tasting, its founder, the fledgling Jewish Whisky Company, called it Whisky Jewbilee.
Read all about the Whisky Jewbilee including quotes from Royal Wine’s wine and spirits educator, Shlomo Blashka.Add a comment
