Goggles for Grating Maror, The Perfect Potato Kugel Bundt Pan and Lots More….

Last week we cleaned, and now we organize our pots, knives, Pyrex and all those mandolins. I am sharing with you the absolute best place to order your needs from. Go online and get everything in time to cook.

Passover Kitchenware and Gadgets You Don’t Have To Be Jewish To Enjoy

When you visit The Peppermill online or the store in Brooklyn, you will find the largest selection of top quality kitchenware and kosher gourmet foods. In addition to stocking premium cookware, bakeware, serve ware and gadgets, they offer cooking classes, and rare gourmet needs every chef needs in a personal and professional kitchen. I recently discussed with the owners what are the most trendy and in demand needs for this Passover.

Among the most requested needs include: the perfect carving knife for roasts, crepe pans for homemade luchin noodles, choppers for salads and different shaped silicone pans to cook and bake in.

Here were some of my picks:

The Perfect Carving Knife for Roasts online from The Peppermill
These Goggles are a Must Have for Maror and all those Onions for Kugels
Peppermill has one of the largest collections of Molds for every course of a Passover Meal

Pesach Pecan Pie From The Peppermill

Peppermill’s Kosher for Passover Pecan Pie

For the crust:
1½ cups blanched almond flour
¼ teaspoon baking soda
¼ cup oil
3 tablespoons sugar
For the pecan filling:
1 tablespoon oil or margarine
1 cup brown sugar (you can substitute granulated sugar but the filling will taste somewhat different)
2 tablespoons orange juice
1 teaspoon vanilla extract (optional)
2 eggs
2 cups shelled pecans plus more for decoration
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
In a medium bowl, combine almond flour and baking soda, if using. In a small bowl, combine oil, sugar and vanilla. Stir wet ingredients into dry to form a “dough.”
Pat dough into a 9.5 inch glass pie dish. 
The filling is really simple; place all ingredients in a food processor and mix to combine. Pour into pie crust. You can lightly place remaining pecans around the edges of the filling, taking care not to press them in too far.
Bake 45 minutes or until filling is puffed and firm. Remove from oven and cool.
**Place 5 ounces almonds in the food processor and pulse the almonds until mostly ground. Pour the ground almonds into a strainer or sifter placed over a bowl. Shake to allow the finer grains to fall through. Place the larger grains back into the processor and repeat the pulsing until the grains are finer. Do not keep the food processor running as it will turn your almonds into almond butter.

Beef Jerky

Beef jerky is a perfect snack for those Chol Hammod day trips and a perfect topping to any salad recipe included in any Passover menu.

Aufschnitt Meats is a 75-year-old company that has three varieties of beef jerky that is available kosher for Passover, original, spicy and barbecue. They produce the flavors in small, artisanal batches with many natural spices to produce a unique taste.

Passover Quinoa “Hummus”
1 cup Kosher for Passover Pereg Natural Foods Quinoa

1 Tablespoon olive oil

1 Tablespoon olive oil, for garnish
1 Tablespoon parsley, finely chopped for garnish

1.     Place quinoa and pine nuts into the bowl of a food processor fitted with the “S” blade. Process until blended.
2.     Add remaining ingredients; continue to blend. Scrape down sides and blend again for approximately 30 seconds. Do not over-blend or the mixture will become gummy.
3.     Transfer to a serving bowl. Garnish with olive oil, parsley, zahtar and paprika. Store in an airtight container

This recipe, along with the rib recipe last week, were shared with permission from Naomi Nachman and Artscroll through Pereg Natural Foods.
