    doyou have any good ideas what to eat p’chah with??

    for those of you who dont know what it is it is fleishig jello made from cows knees

    (by the way this is another mens thread)

    mmm gala. The best thing to do with it is just eat it out of the tray and hope the 25 heads of garlic per square inch will overcome what is probably a lot of cholesterol.

    I don’t actually know if gala is high in cholesterol, but it tastes good enough to be.

    So are you talking about the quivery,garlicy, jelly like substance that jiggels on the plate that is found on the shabbos table? 🙂

    it tastes good plain or eat it with some cracker, tam tams, challah..( i personally dont eat it but from what i see others eating it with) most people just eat it plain.

    when we went to a family we are friends with who are chassidim they had gala and my husband never had it before now he really liked it. oh that and chicken feet in the chulent which he learned from them too. we tried to get him to eat liver but that never took off.

    #735044

    Which kind do you like?

    My grandmother makes it with chunks of meat in it but I like it ground up really well heavy on the garlic. I’ll be honest though, I tend to scrape off the white stuff on top.

    My grandfather used to really like p’chah/gala…us “youngsters” kind of stayed away from it. But it is food, and although you may truly not like it, I don’t think it warrants such negative comments. I think the worst I’ve said about it is, jokingly, that it looks alive.

    I rest my case.

    And although Derech Hamelech has tried to guilt me into eating peeewwww’tcha, I am not rising to the bait. Come to think of it, bait might taste better than p’tcha.

    “If English people can eat bread pudding why can’t we eat cow jello?”

    I’m not even sure how the two are comparable!

    Perhaps you meant to compare it to Haggis, which is Scotland’s national dish, containing sheep heart, liver and lungs chopped together w onions, spices and beef broth and then shoved back in to the sheep stomach and cooked at a nice simmer 🙂

    Kinda like a Hannibal Lecter sausage…

    Two points:

    The good thing about p’tcha is that if it falls off your plate onto the floor, it’ll just bounce right back up onto your plate.

    Also, I heard that people have started making pareve p’tcha out of cow’s socks…

    The Sanctity of Jewish Food:

    I am of Polish ancestry on my father’s side so I would like to start of with the word galareta.

    -If you spell it ????? it is equal to 247, or ??? because there are deep remazim in this special food.

    -Add the kollel and you have ??”? because like the lechem abirim it is the food of Angels.

    -Use the kollel osiyos and you have ??-? because we eat it on Shabbos which is when we light 2 candles.

    My friends. When we speak about such an important food, we know deep in our hearts that it must hold a special place on our Shabbos tischen. And indeed, even for the Hungarians among us who eat ???? this confidence is well place.

    -For ???? with the kollel is in fact the same gematria as

    ??? ???? ???? ??? with the kollel osiyos.

    But we knew this already.

    Ptchah is not high in fat or cholesterol! It is actually ok for peolpe on a diet. Just scrape off the fat layer which you can see on top when it comes out of the fridge.

    #735064

    Its not high in fat? So what makes it wiggle?

    ” bread pudding “

    Perhaps you meant BLOOD pudding, which is an English dish.

    Bread pudding is bread kugel, and quite delicious, made with leftover challah or brioche, eggs, sugar, cinnamon, vanilla, raisins, walnuts, and whatever liquid you want to put into it, then baked like a kugel.

    derech hamelech – interesting gematrios. And SO….?

    The thing that makes it jelly-like, is the same type of thing that makes any jello of non-vegetable origin that way. It is a substance boiled out from the bones, gelatin (this being a kosher source, obviously) from the calves’ feet/legs/whatever it is that is used to make this nauseating looking dish.

    Boy, the only intelligent answer is by Derech Hamelech! Come on, this is not any type of food you should be making fun of, if you don’t want to eat it, DON’T!! This goes back doros and doros. It is not in any way a fad like the Sushi which has come into our community!!If you are not in the meidraga to eat it just keep quiet!! But don’t make fun of it!! By the way I make it hot!

    #735074

    Hot as in spicy or hot as in you serve it hot? My grandfather told me in the alterheim his father used to eat it served hot with bread.

    We make it hot not spicy. Not cold like gala.

    Sacrilege you apparently are not Chasidish and don’t have any ties to past doros, Nebach!! We see things differently! We strive to NOT embarrass our ancestors with our behavior! We could never be on their meidrage! Yes, there were reasons for everything they ate and how they ate it!! Chasidim were able to have avodah in all aspects of their life, even by eating!!

    Oomis: My statement in that it looks alive was upon observation of its jello-like characteristics. However, I do not recall saying deragatory exclamations such as “yuck” “eew” or the like. As I said before, it is food, perhaps not to you, but to others. One of my relatives felt lettuce/greens are animal food. Did that cause him to say negative things about it??? No!

    “We strive to NOT embarrass our ancestors with our behavior!”

    By not eating P’chah we are embarrassing previous generations… go figure.

    “Yes, there were reasons for everything they ate and how they ate it!!”

    Usually having to do with the fact that they had no money.

    Leberlach (liver) men zul leben ehrlach (live Morally upright)

    Kalteh oif (cold fowl) Kol Tuv (everything should be good)

    Lukshen (noodles) life should be “lo kushe” (not difficult)

    Gefillte fish- our pockets should be filled- gefillt

    There are others but i can’t remember them right now

    Sacrilege we are not embarrasing our ancestors by not eating Pchah. We are embarrasing our anscestors by making fun of it and those who do eat it! Not everyone in the alter heim didn’t have money by the way!!
