getting rid of temptation...

I'll tun off the computer and take care of a few things including making the "fruit head."  Does anybody else do a "different" non-fish head for Rosh Hashannah?

We use a sheep's head. The first year we ate at home for Rosh HaShana we didn't know that one has to request a CLEANED head. My husband bought it and I discovered its status when I open the freezer, peeled back the bag and found it staring at me. Fortunately one of our neighbors knew how to kasher and prepare it.

oh my, that must have been something
you can blog about it and how to prepare it
If we had anything when I was growing up, it was just some apple and honey, no head

I had no idea what to do with the head then and I still don't. That's what North-African neighbors are for. We've learned to request a kashered and cleaned sheep's head, which is best cooked in a soup, because the meat can be a bit tough. I mentioned my comment to my husband and he suggested a cabbage or lettuce head as a vegetarian option.
G'mar hatima tova!

I'll most probably give the fish head and uneaten geffilte fish to the cats who live under our front door. I've decided to periodically feed them, since cats kill and eat snakes, mice etc.
