Remember that old Village People song? Question

Hehe, anyway, I thought we could have a thread for Matzah talk.

I came across this while searching out some more info on the gefilte fish. I think I would like to see the ingredients before I send hubby out to buy. I know Rokeach brand does contain MSG and I stay away from that.

Gluten Free Oat Matzos from England can be ordered by calling
44 (0) 208 455 9476e]


Order GF matzoh http://www.glutenfreeoatmatzos.com/ ( includes Shemorah Matzohs)

Another Source Before Passover you can order here http://www.kosher.com/Passover1.cfm

Here's a recipe I found online but haven't tried for mock matzo
GLUTEN-FREE MOCK MATZO

1/3 cup potato starch
1/3 cup almond meal
1 Tbsp flaxseed meal
2 Tbsp shortening or solid coconut oil
3 Tbsp warm water
1/4 tsp salt

Preheat
oven to 450 F. Cover a cookie sheet with aluminum foil. In a medium
bowl, combine the dry ingredients. Mix shortening or coconut oil into
the dry ingredients using your hands. Add water just a little bit at a
time until the dough makes a ball and isn't too sticky. Knead well,
making sure there are no big chunks of shortening. If the dough is
sticky, add additional potato starch. Take walnut size pieces and press
with your fingers onto the foil-covered baking sheet until flat and
thin. Smooth out edges, if desired, and use a fork to prick rows of
holes. Cook for 10 minutes, watching carefully to make sure they don't
get overdone. You should underbake them slightly, rather than
overbaking. Remove from oven as soon as the edges become slightly brown
- The top should still be white.

Now would be the time to experienment, it's getting cool outside, good time for baking and plenty of months to experiement. Smile

Here is a recipe for GF matzoh balls

I tried that mock matzoh and it's really not that great Crying or Very sad

I was really hoping for matzah this past year and that's all we were able to find at the time, and it makes a thin really crumbly (cannot express how crumbly, it was horrid) cracker. It tasted good, but was like dust.. LOL

The Shemurah Matzah from the UK, I have had trouble getting any news if I can get it here. I gave them the name of the kosher shop near me and they asked for my phone #, which we honestly did not have at the time - I haven't heard a peep back from them. The only other commercial sellers I know of are in Israel and say they fall apart easy so you have to pick them up in person. Great, if you are in Israel at the time! Stinks if you aren't Mad

I am in a cooking mood tonight, so I will probably carry that into tomorrow and try Sara's recipe for matza and will let you know how that one turns out. ((Yentl))

I guess I better get busy trying some recipes. I don't look forward to this, its hard enough to get rid of your leftover Gluten matzo, let alone mistakes, I guess the birds won't like me too much soon! affraid Very Happy

Here is a good article from Gluten Free Girls blog written by a guest bloger Lisa Mandl, that gives good Passover preparation advise as well as what to look out for and stock up on right now!

Why Passover Is a Gluten-Free Goldmine

Some highlights:

Passover is a great time for finding new and different gluten-free
selections due to the restrictions of the holiday. During Passover,
wheat, rye, oats, barley, corn, soy, rice & beans (the last two for
Jews from European descent only) and several other foods are forbidden.
This makes it possible to go to a Kosher bakery and typically be able
to find something ready-made that you can enjoy. I take the opportunity
to purchase ready-made salads at the deli counters as well.
Now I say typically and this is very important. One main thing people
have on Passover is matzah - this is made of wheat. Also made of wheat
is matzah meal (ground matzah), matzah farfel (matzah in small pieces)
and cake meal (finely ground matzah). You MUST avoid all foods with
those ingredients. You want to keep your eyes open for this Hebrew
phrase- "non-gebroktz". This means that no wheat was used and means
that any item with that on it is safe for us.

Non-gebroktz is a way the very observant know if a food is safe for them to consume.

We don't have to worry about cross-contamination because the companies
that make these products have to thoroughly clean everything and/or use
completely other equipment for the production of Passover items.
