    Help the Brother out...Looking for Kosher recipes

    Hey gang I found out through some research on my disease that I have a Jewish Great Great Grandmother and I am wanting to make a Kosher meal to celebrate my heritage. Lucky for me my grocery has a killer Kosher section and I can get anything and everything I could ever want. So if you have some old family recipes that you would like to share please do i am really looking forward to cooking this meal and hopefully start incorporating it in our weekly line up of meals that I fix.

    Hi Billy, hope you are all doing ok. I don't know how to write to you direct , ( except for PM's) so writing to you here. Have you received my pm's since being here on the new style QB ? Don't think you are getting them . Seems you deleted some of your messages by accident so maybe that is where they went. You may not remember but I had asked for help in removing the handwheel on a Kenmore S.M. so we could change the belt. You sent me a tute with some great pics, however I still cannot get the wheel off. Does this jog your memory ? At any rate I'm not sure I will ever get the hang of this new board. How about you? You probably have it all figured out. Hope it is ok to put this here.

    My Italian mother was raised in a predominately Jewish neighborhood and had scads of recipe's from her friends mothers. I was fortunate enough to be the inheritor of Mom's recipe box. I'll dig through and see what I can find.

    Do you know where she was from? That could make a big difference as (for example) recipe's from Jews in Russia are going to be a lot different from recipe's from France, Israel, Poland ....

    BTW - I am presuming you mean Kosher "style" recipes - not true Kosher cooking. That is a whole different story.

    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    are you prepared to purchase new cookware? how serious are you? Look in allrecipes.com for latkes, matzoh (for bread or soup) and knishes...my family will do lots of grating and prep work if i will just make latkes (if we're gonna have them then i prefer homemade applesauce as well)... and knishes are really easy if you do pies at all.... have fun...

    I can help you out with this but I need a direction. Are you interested in a meal that includes meat or dairy? A kosher meal won't have the two together. Also wondering if you want a kosher meal or a Jewish meal that's kosher. Many of the things you have in your home already are kosher, but if it's tradition you're looking for I'd probably go with a beef brisket with kasha varnishkas and sweet carrots for side dishes. And don't forget the challah (bread)! If you want our family recipe for brisket (delicious!) and my challah recipe let me know. Kasha varnishkas is a grain (groats) made in a skillet with mushrooms and onions and then mixed with bowtie noodles. In my parents' house ketchup was a must with kasha but when I make it I add seasoning and no ketchup is allowed.

    One thing to remember about Jewish cooking is that much of it grew out of the poverty that most eastern European Jews lived in. In addition to the kosher restrictions, because they were so poor less expensive cuts of meat were used and so a lot of the cooking is done on low heat for a long time. Another reason is that Jews don't cook on the Sabbath, so they came up with dishes that could be prepared before the sun set on Friday and cook overnight so they could be eaten for Saturday lunch. Nowadays that's a lot easier because of crockpots but there is a traditional recipe for cholent which filled this requirement. There are many different ways to make it, but basically it's a thick bean, meat and potato stew. I can provide a recipe for that as well.

    This is probably way more information than you wanted to know! Enjoy!

    enjoy the food

    I'd suggest that since you are embracing the food and not the religeon, you don't need new cookware. I'd start by thinking of what food you really enjoy and then looking for something similar. Latkes are a kind of pancake and can be made with onions as a side dish for meat or chicken or without onions and served with either sour cream or applesauce or both.
    One of my favorite things to make is a noodle pudding. Again can be made as a side dish or a dessert. Can be sweet or savory.
    Use google to search and you will find more than you can believe.
    Whatever you decide on, enjoy the experience.

    Yes I am embracing the food, since my wife and I are foodies from the word go we are wanting to try and do a traditional Kosher styled meal. I am southern Baptist so I do not think I will be jumping the fence anytime soon but I think it is wonderful that I have a Jewish lineage. And buying another set of cookware for kosher cooking is really not out of the realm because I think you can never have too much cookware. Not that I am gong to run out and do that but I love spending time in the kitchen so it is no different than my toolbox in the garage I have plenty of things in there that I only use once or twice if that.

    But yes I would love to fix a traditional meal (dishes) to say I did and to celebrate my heritage, and the brisket sounds wonderful!! YUM!!!
