Happy Passover!

March 30th, 2010

My all-time favorite kosher food ad:

And for those of you who are simply interested in high-quality food, kosher or not, may I recommend Wild Idea Buffalo: meat from buffalo that live grass-fed, unconfined lives and never hear a discouraging word until the day they are humanely slaughtered. (Does anyone else find “harvested” even more disturbing than “slaughtered”? Sometimes euphemisms are a lot worse than the actual word they are intended to replace. I ordered some last week and was very impressed with the pastrami.

(No, I am not getting any kickbacks from either Kosher.com or Wild Idea Buffalo. As delighted as I would be to have free bison brisket and crates of macaroons and matzoh delivered to my door, I’m only sharing the ad for its humor value, and the buffalo recommendation as a solution for those who, like me, need red meat in their diet but can’t stomach, as it were, factory-farming practices.)

    That was awesome. i will definitely be checking out kosher.com and the buffalo meat. There really aren’t enough commercial jingles anymore.

    We joined a meat CSA a few years ago and have been thrilled – we get humanely-raised beef, pork, and veal (nothing like the supermarket veal – it’s indescribably good) from Vermont delivered to our door once a month. The one I belong to is http://www.houdefamilyfarm.com, but there are several available in the area. localharvest.org is a great source for that kind of thing.

    Gotta love the hamentaschen flying in formation — did you see ‘em, towards the end? Next Purim, that’s what I want, squadrons of flying hamentaschen, zooming like Star Wars tie-fighters.

    I’ve been considering joining a meat CSA too, akmom, but I don’t have a lot of freezer space! How much do you normally get at a go? (Of course, I could probably get our downstairs neighbor/landlord to go in on it with us …)

    Robin, we get 10 pounds a month. The larger shares (15 and 20 lbs) offer the option to get a roast, but until the kids are teenagers, we just can’t use that much. It’s a mix of cuts – about half ground meats, sausage, stew meat, and half chops, steaks, cutlets. The ham and bacon are absolutely amazing.
