Gefilte Fish

 

Polish Style

Broth:

Fish Bones from fish store

2-3 Carrots

2 celery ribs

2-3 small onions

2-3 teaspoons salt

1/3 cup sugar

Gefilte Fish:

1 pound dore, ground

1/2 pound whitefish, ground

1/2 pound pike, ground

2 eggs

l medium minced onion

l large minced carrot

l stalk minced celery

1/3 cup matzo meal, about

1 cup ice water, about

2 1/2 tsp. salt

1/2 - 3/4 tsp. black pepper

1/2 - 3/4 cup sugar

Broth:


Water to cover fish bones, plus about 1/3 cup sugar, 2-3 teaspoons salt, celery, carrots, and two to three small quartered onions

Mince fish (even though it is ground) with a hand mincer or in food processor to make fluffier, adding in about 1/4 cup ice water as you do this. Make sure fish is minced well, then proceed to mix in remaining ingredients as for making hamburgers, adding a bit more ice water in small amounts to fluff up fish if it looks too pasty. (Again, this can be done in a food processor or by using an old fashioned chopper (a double bladed thing with a wood handle - still avail. in kitchen stores, called a "hoch masser" in Yiddish - transliteral spelling).

If mixture is very loose, add more matzoh meal (but chilling will help). Chill, for easier handling, then shape into balls, using wet hands (re-dip as necessary) to form balls.

Bring broth to a boil, lower to simmer. Add fish balls and simmer coverer for 2 hours. Chill well.

Borscht-cold beet soup

 

Serves 6


 

2 lbs (1 kg) raw beets

A little salt and pepper

Juice of 1 lemon

2 tablespoons sugar or to taste

6 peeled boiled potatoes (optional)

1 cup (250 ml) sour cream to pass around

Peel the beets and dice them. If they are young, that is easy to do. If they are old and too hard to dice, simply cut them in half and, when they have softened with boiling, lift them out, cut them up, and put them back in the pan. Put the beets in a pan with 9 cups (2 liters) of water and salt and pepper and simmer for 1-1/2 hours.

Let the soup cool, then chill, covered, in the refrigerator. Add the lemon and sugar to taste before serving (these could be added when the soup is hot, but it is more difficult to determine the intensity of the flavoring). Remove some of the beet pieces with a slotted spoon if it seems like there are too many of them and keep them for a salad.

Serve, if you like, with a boiled potato, putting one in each plate. Pass around the sour cream for all to help themselves
