Thanks again for making me think of it!
You are welcome - I envy you the photos - mine is just text.

Re: Jewish Cookery Book

I used to make Jewish Pencilian a lot at one time, and I used to go to Jews Island in Stoke Newington, N1 to buy the Jewish Chicken Stock.

My Mother-in-Law was a School Cook all of her life in the Jewish School.

You're not Jewish are you Tabs?

Re: Jewish Cookery Book

I guess there can be many variations but carrot & celery are a must.

We get a couple chicken carcasses from our local butcher*, boil in seasoned water, remove any meat, discard skin & bone. Bring back to the boil, throw in diced carrot & celery, boil for 5 mins ....

then, something not mentioned above, add tiny pasts shells, or there's one that looks like rice grains, boil for a further 5 mins until pastas cooked.

That does two meals for two. You know it's the real thing when it goes gelatinous when cooled.

*cost £1 each but there's some meat of there, and it's quality pullet from a quality butcher.

As someone form Jewish stock on my grandmother's side, I applaud your efforts to find the missing book. Some old recipes I love, but a small number of others I steer well clear as I have a history involving a duodenal + peptic ulcers so some foods/dishes I need to avoid.

No - but I love Jewish food - it is so delicious. There was a Jewish bakery/cafe not far from where the brother lived and I used to go for breakfast there - freshly made bagels with cream cheese - yummy!

BEST EVER CHICKEN SOUP

INGREDIENTS – serves 6 -8

3 lbs chicken cut into portions (I use breast meat)
3 Onions – quartered.
6 pints of water
5 celery stalks – sliced
4 carrots – sliced (I leave these out if I am going to make it as Cream of Chicken soup - they spoil the colour)
1 small parsnip – sliced
2 Tablespoons chopped parsley
2 Tablespoons chopped dill
Pinch of turmeric
2 chicken stock cubes
2 cloves of garlic – chopped
Salt and pepper to taste.

Put the chicken pieces in a very large pan/cauldron. Add the other ingredients – reserving half the dill to garnish.

Cover the pan and bring to the boil. Lower the heat to simmer. Skim and discard any scum that rises to the surface.

Add the stock cubes and simmer for about 2 hours. Skim off any fat..

At this point you can decide on how you want your soup to look. Traditionally it would be served as it is now –clear and rather chunky – and with delicious little dumplings called knaidlach or lokshen (Noodles)

If you want a smoother, less chunky look you can blitz it in a blender.

Here’s where it becomes Cream of Chicken Soup.

Not sure if this bit is strictly kosher – but – after I have blitzed the soup and returned it to the cauldron - I make a liaison with two egg yolks, whisked into 6 x tablespoons of fresh single cream – a dash of dry white wine, and a pinch of freshly ground nutmeg.

Drizzle this carefully into the soup – stirring the whole time so it doesn’t split. Heat it through for a few minutes just to cook the egg yolks. Garnish with the remaining dill and serve immediately or package and freeze. Keeps for 4 - 6 months in the freezer. Needs whisking as it thaws or the cream will separate.


Enjoy!
OMG, ST. That recipe for best ever chicken soup sounds heavenly. I love looking at Jewish recipes on youtube, trouble is, I never seem to have half of the necessary ingredients needed to make their authentic and traditional recipes, so usually give up before starting.

That recipe does sound really good though.
