Enjoy Kosher Food Around the World
I figured kosher dietary guidelines would be a good place to start before going into recipes. I’m going to try to keep it simple.
1. No mixing meat or dairy. Poultry is included in the meat category for kosher eating purposes.
2. Only certain types of meat are allowed, the animal must have split hooves and chew its cud.
Cattle, sheep, goats, deer and bison are kosher. Rabbit, pig, camel are not allowed
3. Only certain types of fish/seafood are allowed. Fish need to have scales and fins.
Shrimp, catfish, crab and lobster, oysters are just some of the no-nos.
4. Produce must be checked for bugs
Yep, no eating creepy crawly creatures or worms.
This is the very, very basics. If you’d like to learn about keeping kosher more in depth http://www.jewfaq.org/kashrut.htm
I am only going to discuss the ones that I know to be reliable. Others may be reliable too, but I just don’t have the information on them. The ones in the above picture that I personally hold to be reliable is the cRc one in the triangle, the one right underneath that with the mini K and the VH, the O with the U in the middle, the O with the K in the middle, the star with the K in the middle on the bottom right corner, and the hebrew letter chaf which is on the top right corner with the K in the middle.
If you have any other questions, just leave me a comment below.
