Recipe For Vegetarian Schmaltz — 38 Comments

  1. So interesting, Tandy. The only time I’ve used Copha, in fact the product used to be known for it in Australia, is when making chocolate crackles. You melt the Copha and mix in the other ingredients, then the Copha cools down and hardens. Knowing that, it makes sense, that you have oil as an added ingredient to keep the schmaltz spreadable. Would that be right?

  11. Not being able to buy special food where you are becomes a good motivation to make your own! It sounds like a very tasty addition to a sandwich.

  18. Hi Tandy – I am learning quite a lot about Jewish culture via your blog. I knew about not mix dairy and meat but it had never occured to me about the problem this creates is you want to use schmaltz. But what is holsum? I have no idea. I Googled it but only came up with the name of a bread company in the US. Is it some sort of lard replacement or similar? I find this fascinating.
