    I bake mine. I don’t cook the loaf on top of the stove because it always comes out soggy. How do I get my fish to taste just like “chap a nosh” take out gefilte fish?

    Lots of sugar in the water, carrots, and celery, salt and pepper to taste, and of course, sliced onions.

    1/2 C – 3/4 C of sugar. Water to cover half the loaf when submerged.

    I cook gefilte fish.

    Just wondering is there anyone here that makes their own gefilte fish loaf?

    The opening poster wrote something about “take out gefilte fish.” I took out a gefilte fish once, but after that I got a different shadchan.

    Sorry, but there is something fishy about that entire post!

    On a scale of 1-10 it’s minus 1. If this poster ever wrote something good, it was a fluke. I am fin-ished now.

    Sweet fish? Feh! Our gefilte fish was always made with salt an pepper and always from fresh ground, never from a loaf.. When I was married, my mother,O’H had to teach my kallah how to make proper gefilte fish as her family was from south of the Gefilte Fish Line (look it up) and always made sweet fish (did I already say feh?).

    Incidentally, the Gefilte Fish Line is also the demarkation between proper Yiddish pronunciation and Galitzianer pronunciation.

    Galizianer is Proper yiddish pronounciation, but what has happend is Jews from Galicia have disappeared along with their customs and speaking and have merged into other groups MO, Litvish , Hungarian Chassidish or just assimilated

    ZD, the Yiddish you hear today in Yeshivas should properly be called American Yiddish. The pronunciation is similar to sort of Litvishe Yiddish but any one who ever heard R’ Moshe, ZTL or R’Yaakov, ZTL or, for that matter, my father and mother, A’H speak can instantly hear the difference.

    The best thing about gefilte fish is the chrain

    Redleg Ive heard the real Galizaner Yiddish. I know what it sounds like. My mother sort of speaks it (Although she never speaks in Yiddish anymore as she doesnt know anyone who speaks it)

    Can’t we afford to feed our families fish yet? I see mansions filled with silver and fine china, the entranceways blocked by the 3-4 cars that each cost as much as a house, and when I get inside they serve me ground fish cut with meal. And as if thats not bad enough, for the next course they serve me cow intestine stuffed with flour. And occasionally they serve me a rare treat, jell boiled out of the leg bones of cows. I cry for their poverty.

    When I first got married, I made my own gefilte fish from scratch. From low quality salmon.

    It came to the same price as if you bought it from an out of town kosher supermarket with a monopoly on Jewish products.

    No opinion on Ptcha, It was like an exotic food to me, I tried it once , didnt like or dislike it and just moved on . Would I try it again , not really but nobody I know even knows how to make it anyway and I dont even think many even know what it is.
