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?February 13, 2011 3:47 am at 3:47 am #1106416oomisParticipant
Lots of sugar in the water, carrots, and celery, salt and pepper to taste, and of course, sliced onions.February 13, 2011 4:07 am at 4:07 am #1106417doodle jumpParticipant
How much sugar? How much water?February 13, 2011 11:02 am at 11:02 am #1106418PosterMember
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?February 26, 2014 10:24 pm at 10:24 pm #1106419luvchulentMember
Never cooked a non frozen gefilte fish before, how long and at what temp. do I leave it in oven?February 27, 2014 3:43 am at 3:43 am #1106421nfgo3Member
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.February 27, 2014 4:39 am at 4:39 am #1106422
why is that nfgo was she not finny enough for you? or she was not
a lure ing?February 27, 2014 1:35 pm at 1:35 pm #1106423oomisParticipant
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.February 27, 2014 2:27 pm at 2:27 pm #1106424

The best Gefilte Fish is on someone elses plate
I cant stand itFebruary 27, 2014 3:40 pm at 3:40 pm #1106426RedlegParticipant
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.February 27, 2014 4:02 pm at 4:02 pm #1106427
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 assimilatedFebruary 27, 2014 5:46 pm at 5:46 pm #1106428RedlegParticipant
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.February 27, 2014 6:18 pm at 6:18 pm #1106429
The best thing about gefilte fish is the chrainFebruary 27, 2014 6:50 pm at 6:50 pm #1106430
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)February 27, 2014 6:51 pm at 6:51 pm #1106431
When I am served Gefitle Fish and dont want to be rude, I drown it in Chrain so its more chrain than “Gefilte”February 27, 2014 6:57 pm at 6:57 pm #1106432
Zdad – I do the exact same thing. and I’m even the one serving it.February 27, 2014 9:21 pm at 9:21 pm #1106433
I think thats the first time anyone here ever agreed with meFebruary 27, 2014 9:28 pm at 9:28 pm #1106434
Zdad – lol. I remembering agreeing with you once before and you reacted the same way!February 27, 2014 11:12 pm at 11:12 pm #1106435rcParticipant
can anyone tell me how to successfully defrost a loaf and add stuff to is so it will taste like real homemade (sweet) gefilte fish… what to add, and how to cook it so it wont fall apartFebruary 27, 2014 11:39 pm at 11:39 pm #1106436squeakParticipant
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.March 3, 2014 8:09 pm at 8:09 pm #1106438nfgo3Member

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.October 23, 2015 1:05 am at 1:05 am #1106449
I never even heard of Ptcha until a few years ago, Ive never seen it servedOctober 23, 2015 1:18 am at 1:18 am #1106450CTLAWYERParticipant

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.October 23, 2015 10:58 am at 10:58 am #1106454
