Pesach Post 1 – Pesach Lists

queenswalk.jpg

This year, I want to try and post about Pesach once or twice a week with ideas, suggestions and guidelines for those of us who do not live in places with lots of kosher products and are busy with work – in other words people for whom Pesach looks like a nightmare and who wish they could disappear from the surface of the earth for the full eight days of the chagim. I’ll also post a few simple and quick recipes.

My first suggestion is to plan in advance. I know what you are already saying ‘I’ll be lucky if I can think about it a week in advance so a month….’ By planning I mean: purchase food that is kosher for Pesach little by little, stock it in your pantry so you’ll be happy and proud to find it when the times come!

Products that keep and will prove to be useful:
– Frozen vegetables
– Frozen fish
– Canned fruit
– Tuna
– (Real) coffee
– Tea, but not herbal tea

If you eat kitniyot, add:
– Rice
– Lentils
– Beans

Feel free to make suggestions; I am a fledgeling at this.

Look at one of the lists below and keep an eye for the products you like when shopping.

Here are some links to Pesach lists, articles and guidelines:

- Orthodox Union Pesach Page. They also have iPhone and Android apps

- London Beth Din Kashrut Division (not updated yet)

- Consistoire de Paris

Remember that the Masorti movement allows eating kitniyot (Legumes) on Pesach. Here is an English summary of the Hebrew responsum.

May your Pesach preparations feel more like a walk than a run!

  1. If only I ate kitniyot … I think cleaning out my daughter’s room is top on my list coming up. Then there is getting rid of all those mishloach manot.

    Eating fish and vegetables for a week doesn’t sound too bad. I could do that. One year, when I was in my vegetarian stages, I tried eating mostly vegetables. I got very hungry. I learned to eat meat and chicken again.
