Whole Foods Passover Exclusives

Sunday April 20, 2014

Harrison-s-Chocolate-Chips.jpgIf you're doing a last minute, pre-Yom Tov produce run at Whole Foods, here's a head's up -- you'll find a few other kosher for Passover goodies there, like Fair Trade Fox's U-Bet syrup, organic yogurt, and pareve(!) dark chocolate chips. The latter are supposedly going to be available year-round, but given the dearth of good pareve dark chocolate chips on the market, you may want to grab a bunch before people catch wise, just in case they turn out to be a Passover-only product.

Passover Pancakes -- or Crepes!

Thursday April 17, 2014

passover pancakesI was halfway through making Passover Pancakes for breakfast this morning when I realized I didn't buy baking powder for Pesach this year. It was too late to turn back, so I proceeded with the recipe, and and am happy to report that it still works.

Now, if you can track it down, using kosher for Passover baking powder will result in fluffier pancakes. But without it, these are still yummy. And as a bonus, I discovered that sans leavening agent, the batter pours thin enough to make a pretty respectable Pesach crepe recipe.

Passover Shopping, Made Simple(r)

Thursday April 10, 2014

PesachShoppingList.JPGPassover begins in just 5 days, which means that if you haven't started stockpiling Pesach groceries already, this is the time to start! Personally, since I use a ton of fresh produce during Passover, I necessarily do a lot of last minute shopping. †But I try to get as much shelf-stable stuff as possible now, so I can put it away and not have to think about it at the last minute.

I find that I usually have to hit several different markets to find all that I need, which increases the likelihood of forgetting something. †So this year, I've drawn up an extensive chart-style shopping list, and I'm sharing it here with you. There's room to write in items, quantities, and add notes, so you can customize the list to your needs. (You can get the list in printer-friendly format if you click the small printer icon on the upper right-hand corner of the page, underneath the search box.)

The only thing I didn't include was a section for kitniyot foods, for those who eat them. If you'd find this helpful, please email me at kosherfood@aboutguide.com, and I'll revise the list!
