i have'nt been around here in while and just noticed this thread, great!!
I strive for tf and sometimes we are more and sometimes less....
recently ,due to a family crisis ( sick daughter, extended hospital stay, stress etc
the only tf food we have been having a lot of is bone broth.
I would come home from the hospital for a break and put up a "pot of bone"....
it was the first real food my dd ate and she had 6 cups on that day!
I find keeping kosher and tf can be a challenge, over time I have just adapted to what we can and cannot do. For a while dh was able to buy free range chickens by the case for a good price, but it's been a while. sometimes I get free range / organic or black angus ground meat or marrow bones etc; at our local kosher store but it is very $$$$$. I kosher the chicken livers on our grill outside since it is stainless steel and it is super easy. We keep chalav and there are no cows close by so raw dairy is a tough one. We still use the kosher butter and buy whole milk which is relatively local, about 3 hours away and hormone and antibiotic free and when I spoke to them they did try to explain about some grazing and feeding the cows alfalfa etc; but it is still pasturized
My dd's make great pareve deserts with coconut milk and we use coconut oil or palm shortening. We are also gluten free.
btw, my kids really like their pickles a little sweet, bubbies makes a sweet one. do any of you have a recipe for a slightly sweet one?
I also find raising 8 kids and homeschooling, doesn't leave a lot of time to always do/make what I planned to
my dh and I love kimchee which I plan to make some tomorrow.
btw, I think that our cholent is kinda tf
I use bones (my kids love marrow bones) and add meat, brown rice, (soaked) potatoes, yams, sometimes some pumkin or butternut squash, loads of garlic , stock/broth, sea salt, cayenne, and some ground cumin and coriander and let it all cook on low in the crock pot. I don't cook any of it beforehand so it is really slow cooked!!
