Weird new food

Remember how I mentioned serving olive-oil potato chips after karpas?

For all you non-kitniot eaters, there's a new product out that you might want to try:

Avocado oil potato chips

We bought some last week to test them out and they were actually pretty good - a tad oily, as one might expect of kettle-style chips, but good. They were tucked in with the gourmet/crunchy granola snack foods at our upscale organic grocery, so you'll probably find them in a similar place (such as Whole Foods). They're made by "Good Health Natural Foods."

This sounds like an interesting product to try. Do you have a lot of trouble finding kosher food where you live?

I feel like I am on a treasure hunt when I go grocery shopping in Boise, Idaho.

Hi Melissa,

Our family isnt Orthodox, so we don't restrict ourselves to only things with a kosher label, we just use ingredients lists to avoid common treif.

But actually, there's a ton of marked-kosher food available here, including frozen kosher meat at Trader Joe's, and a couple grocery stores in higher Jewishy-population neighborhoods. Boise is a pretty big city, isn't it? You should call the local synagogues and see if they have tips on where to get kosher food.

I wish we had Trader Joes. I love that store, but not in Boise.

Thank you for the great ideas.

Fried avocado is also quite tasty. Treat them just like any other material for tempura - light batter, and rolled in panko or a kosher le-peysach panko substitute.

Which makes me wonder if matze crumbs would be appropriate.

Oddly, also good in samosa. But I prefer to add them to a curry instead. Well with coconut milk and dark-toasted cumin seed, pinch of amchoor.

I heartily recommend.
