Post-Shemitta- KCC #35

Post-Shemitta KCC
Kosher Cooking Carnival #35
Tishrei, 5769 תשרי ,

Looking back, here's a list of all the previous KCC's:
1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, KCCMetaCarnival, 22, 23, 24, 25, 26, 27, 28, 29, 30, 31, 32, 33, and 34.

From the beginning, of the Kosher Cooking Carnivals, I've said that it's not "just a kosher recipe carnival." I hope that more halachik posts will be sent. Now, freshly post-Shemitta, things are most complicated in Israel. Yes, we can work in the garden, and farmers can go back to the fields, orchards and vinyards, but for the kosher consumer/customer there's the reverse count-down from last year. It will take a while for vegetables to be non-shemitta and then longer for fruit and even longer for "products" like juice, wine and canned goods. So, if you write, or read, any posts about those issues, please send them, in.

Let's start with
Raizy's Perfect Pasta Salad.

Lady-Light tempts us with her
Succot menu. I hope my family doesn't see it, or they'll be jealous. And you must read about her adventures making Jerusalem Kugel.

And here's Juggling Frogs'
Sukkot / Shmini Atzeret Meal Planners for 2008 ~5769. You can use them any year, I'm sure.

And here's a
A medieval Rosh Hashana menu by Devo K.

I'll have to try Robin's
edible succot with the grandkids next year!

Eating out in Jerusalem doesn't have to be expensive.
Take a look!

The Hip Hostess sent in Quinoa Salad with Orange, Cilantro & Golden Raisins.

And here's another
orange colored salad; the raisins are optional. It depends on if you want two or three ingredients. Yes, it's that simple!

not really over yet; is it?

Is The Key to Redemption a
Chocolate mousse pie? Check it out.

My husband loves Jerusalem artichokes. I wish they would self-peel.

Here's a very special
An Apple a Day... from profK.

T'china has become very international, available in supermarkets all over the world. But it's really
very easy to make at home.

Mimi has
za'atar on her mind. Have you ever wondered what's really in that seasoning? Mimi will tell you.

I'm working on this KCC right now, just after Simchat Torah, so the title:
The Heartburn and The Heeb really speaks to me, to my kishkes, to be exact. It's on Shtetl Fabulous, what a name!

Annette Berlin presents
Easy Pizza Dough. Made with pizza sauce, veggies and cheese, this dough makes a lovely lunch. Or, substitute the cheese for meat and create a fabulous fleishig meal. I had trouble accessing the blog, but it does sound like a great recipe.

Here's a first for me. Turn on your speakers for this one: George L Smyth presents
One Minute How-To - How To Create A Traditional Taste For The Holidays posted at George L Smyth, starring: Feed Me Bubbe!

There are Jewish neighborhoods in this world where even the most righteous have trouble finding a succah. Jerusalemite writes of many of the
kosher restaurants in Jerusalem which build succot for their diners.

Under normal conditions, this isn't food, but
when you're caught by the flu, you're willing to try almost anything. More suggestions are requested.

Soup! "
Soup for the king!"

Comforting Carrot Soup sounds just perfect, and her Lemon Stuffing for Chicken seems very tempting, too.

Juggling Frogs tempts me with her
Creamy Carrot Miso Soup. Well, jug' if I'm ever your guest…

And another
soup, this time by Our Shiputzim; there's nothing "everyday" about it.

Yes, soups are very popular. That's why I've made a special category this time. Here's Annette Berlin's
Stracciatella Soup.

If you're interested in hosting a future KCC, please let me know, shilohmuse at yahoo dot com.
Baila is hosting November; Leora has December and Ilana-Davita has reserved January.

Please submit your posts and any others you deem suitable for KCC via
blog carnival. And if BC is down, like it was the last time I checked, you can just mail me the links, and I'll pass them on to the hostesses, unless you know their emails.

Thanks to all of you, and please post and link this edition of KCC to your blog and pass the link around. It's only worth the effort if many people read it and visit the various blogs who participate. The Kosher Cooking Carnival is based on submitted links. The hosts aren't required to search.

Enjoy, there's something for every taste.
PS Just a reminder to send links in for Havel Havelim and JPIX.
