For favorite Passover recipes from my kitchen, please get the book Essential Passover from Scratch: Recipes and Stories from My Mother’s Kitchen
This is the weekend to dive into Passover cooking. My goal is to tackle a couple of family recipes and post them here: Passover teglach and chopped liver. I’m also going to make ingberlach, matzo granola and eingie.
My mother would save up chicken livers and chicken fat throughout the year. Her freezer was dotted with tiny plastic bags, each carrying the livers and fat from two chickens–the number that she would put on the rotisserie every Friday. I know that chopped liver isn’t everyone’s favorite, but it was a regular appetizer in our family’s house and I feel compelled to document the process. It’s rare that I buy a whole chicken anymore, so this morning I’m headed out into Northern Virginia in search of chicken livers and schmaltz.
