  3. We are hooked on the best and most mehudar Matzos Kommemius from Eretz Yisroel. We used to bring them back upon our return from Eretz Yisroel when Purim spent there. Now we order in advance and pick them up here in Boro Park.

    Incorrigible; eccentric; somewhere between mean and average; sometimes only a bit over the top; arbitrarily engaged in cynicism.

    The reason matza tastes bad is because it is stale.
    Put it in the oven for a few minutes, you will be amazed.

    not so common

    to popa, only if you eat gebrokes, if you don't you can't bake it.

    Is that really so? I never heard you can't bake it?
    Why not? If you don't make it wet?

    Which Matzos are the thinnest this year? I don't know about thinest, but Pupa-Tzelem is 8 matzos per pound (Satmar Williamsburg is 6).

    where can women go matzah baking?

    If you're good at rolling, almost anywhere. You can make $12 an hour. ;)

    Komemius is propably the thinnest so tastes the best even when stale, but any brand will taste good after crisping in the oven for a few minutes.

    I'd rather eat thick matzah than thin cardboard but על טעם וריח אין להתווכח. Satmar Willi for me - טעם גן עדן.

    Yogiboo, I am in EY, and I make a little more than just enough for the seder, the rest of the week is machine shmura. I do share my set up with yechidim, and I am happy to mentor anyone, just someone in the kitchen has to have a deep grasp of the halacha. Maybe I can tempt you- fresh ground(+24) whole grain is really yummy, nutty and sweet.

    My friend loves Kerestirer matzos. OT slightly, does anyone knwo of a totally gluten free matzah that is tasty? A relative of mine has been provisionally diagnosed with celiac disease, so we want to avoid problems on Pesach. Also, dos anyone know Non-Gebrochts companies that can be relied upon to not make their products with traces of nuts? My granddaughter has a nut allergy (to all nuts and seeds - but seeds are not shayach to Pesach), and I want to know if there are any products that we can safely use for her that will not trigger anything.

    nnnngh( The sound of biting tongue and preparing to be polite)

    If it is gluten free, there are yesh omrim (more than one) that it is not matzoh, never mind the taste. For the newly diagnosed celiac, ones rachamana patrei, and vochai bohem is as much Torah as matzo.

    On the nut allergy, prepare to do lots of potato starch/egg cookies. I, having worked in the entrails of the food service industry have seen all manner of carelessness, and traces and cross contamination is just doing business as usual. If there was an allergy to roach legs, we would all be in trouble.

    DY - "I don't know about thinest, but Pupa-Tzelem is 8 matzos per pound"

    I also think these are the best tasting!

    For the people who don’t tolerate regular Matzah (like me…) and eating Spelt Matzah, I’m just letting you know that for the last 2 years I’m eating Matzah made from the Arizona Wheat & it was great for me. (also heard it from a lot of people who use to use Spelt)

  26. okay
    i didnt want to start a thread on this
    but the cRc in their Pesach magazine said that Metamucil original coarse is recommended for Pesach even though it has no hechsher.

    only ORIGINAL COARSE

    i found it at Osco and it is available online from many sources.
    for those who prefer regular Matzoh to whole wheat, this can be a big help.

    for those who dont know, metamucil is a high fiber powder which is mixed into liquid

    The thinnest matzo in NY is Chareidim. Regular or whole wheat. You get 11 matzos per lb.
