The companies that grow #meat from cultured cells present their offering as an environmentally friendly and ethical alternative. They are also trying to make the case that the cultivated meat can be #halal and #kosher. @nytimes https://www.nytimes.com/2023/09/22/business/lab-grown-meat-kosher-halal.html?smid=nytcore-android-share
Cultivated #meat can be #kosher & #halal if its cells are derived in compliance with religious standards. It is derived from animal cells grown in steel vats, without land-intensive #farming operations & slaughterhouses: https://www.reuters.com/markets/commodities/lab-grown-meat-can-be-kosher-halal-experts-say-2023-09-11/ #cultivatedmeat #cleanmeat #landuse
Umm okay that Kosher smoked pastrami I ordered and got from Grow & behold is so far so full of fat that I've so far got more in weight & volume to use for soups/stews as a flavoring agent with said fat & connective tissue, than I do in sandwich meat... so next month I'll definitely order something else.

Hey #Boston #Mazeldon #Costco shoppers... So, I was at the #Waltham Costco last night and once again they had no #Kosher "Mexican blend" cheese. This time, there happened to be a Costco employee standing near the case it's usually in, so I asked what was up. "Oh, we don't carry most of the Kosher stuff anymore, it's going to #Dedham now." So if, like me, you noticed less Kosher stuff in Waltham, you weren't imagining it. It's apparently time to switch to Dedham.
Jesus offends – Kosher food
Hypocrites! Well did Isaiah prophesy about you, saying:
‘These people draw near to Me with their mouth,
And honour Me with their lips,
But their heart is far from Me.
And in vain they worship Me,
Teaching as doctrines the commandments of men.’ ”
Oh, and now that we know I’m celiactic (new word!), I’ve decided to make the switch to keeping strictly #kosher since I’m already replacing my kitchenware out of necessity anyway.
I’m not too proud to beg.
My wishlist is in my linktree.
There’s literally no point in your #meat being #organic and supposedly #CrueltyFree if the poor animal was bludgeoned and electrocuted to death. How in the hell can non-Halal slaughtered meat still have an #SPCA endorsement on it?!? It’s fucking barbaric how these animals are killed. If folks really cared, but still wanted to eat meat (like I do), they’d demand that ALL (non-pork) meat be either #halal or #kosher slaughter. It’s about as humane as it can get.

There is the idea of consuming an unborn calf after slaughtering the mother… since the calf doesn't need slaughtering, it isn't meat but because it comes from a kosher slaughtered animal it is kosher. So there is precedent for the cultivation possibly being permitted.
There really are a few questions:
Is it kosher at all, and, if so, is it considered meat? If it is kosher and it isn't meat, should we consider it meat anyways?
I thought I had a pretty good understanding of kosher law and food buying, but I actually learned quite a bit with this Frum It Up video on going grocery shopping as an Orthodox Jew.
EDIT: Sorry, I had the wrong video originally!
If you follow a #Kosher food/diet (for whatever reason, like health or religious) and you want to eat outside:
Me: Does this have pork/shellfish/shrimp/etc.? Oh, none? That's great!
If you also have #gout, like me:
Me ordering food in a Seventh Day Adventist canteen: Do you have anything not made with soya?
Or, in a non-vegetarian restaurant:
Me: Does this have beef/tilapia/sardines/seeds/beans/innards/etc.? Ok, not that, I have gout. How about this?
If you join a party (company or some event) and someone offers you an alcoholic drink:
Me: I'm sorry but I have gout.
Them: Just one bottle.
Me: Umm… *smiles* I really can't.
Them: Come on. Just one sip. I'll give you ₱2,000 raise.
Me: Thank you for the offer, but I really can't.
Me: I'm this close into cursing you to experience what it feels like to have gout flare-ups.
No takers? OK. Fine.
I'll have to elaborate then.
Let's go back in time a bit. Say... roughly 400 BC. Before the romans had any real say. Or the christians. The #mediterranean back then was the common playground of greeks, egyptians and jews. The bigger wars were over or had yet to happen. Science, art and economy were blooming and booming.
But how did jews prepare their #moussaka - without feta, milk or anything similiar to bechamel?
BIG. FAT. SLABS. OF. #HUMMUS.
App that can generate 64,000 kosher cheesecake recipes pitches AI to Orthodox Jews
The Brooklyn marketing exec behind CheesecakeWizard.AI walks a fine line in an insular, internet-averse community, shopping the new tech only to those who already use the net
"Rabbis rule it’s kosher to eat at unsupervised vegan and vegetarian restaurants, say many of their members already see ‘no obvious kashrut problems’ in doing so"
"For years, a subset of Jews who eat only at kosher-certified restaurants have bent the rules by taking advantage of a growing trend: fully vegan eateries.
Now, a ruling issued by the Conservative movement has given that practice its official imprimatur, declaring that Jews may eat at vegetarian or vegan restaurants that don’t have kosher supervision."
C. Is a bolt gun to the head painless and without suffering? Sure it's better than #kosher or #halal (right? 🙃 https://www.isahalal.com/news-events/blog/why-halal-slaughter-humane ) but is it completely painless and without suffering? Wouldn't a philosopher with 50 years of ethics and morality experience question this assumption of a 'painless kill'? Is one second of pain equivalent to no pain? Does that mean one punch in the face for a second is ok?
D. Are they really 'allies'? Or are they 'enemies'? Are they more aligned with an omnivore or a #vegan? Who would they associate and connect with more? Is this whole baby step/stepping stone/ #MeatlessMonday situation just a tokenistic way to make people feel better about themselves without doing much about anything (a #CheatDay or 4, per week, is allowed right? Right?). Where are all these allies, 50 years worth, of people, switching over to realising what they are doing is cruel to the animal? Wouldn't 50 years of baby steps from Princeton, be enough to reach Melbourne by now?
There are other communities that I haven't searched for and expanded my #fediverse reach (a.k.a. #ObservableFediverse).
2. #Kosher food
3. #Running and #Archery (in particular Asian archery)
My “observable fediverse” is well-built now for #autism / #autistics / #ActuallyAutistics, great community we have here; and #Filipinos / #Philippines, even discovered new, great Filipinos I wouldn't have found elsewhere.
As for fandoms, it's slow. There are fans and fandom accounts, but most are casually active. I'm not talking about sharing photos (although that is part of it), it's more of in discussion threads.
So, again, you need to build and grow your “observable fediverse” because it will determine and shape what you are seeing and who you are interacting with in the fediverse.
IKR. Mine is reversed, they are forcing me to drink alcohol and they were using their position in the company. But, LOL, I always stood my ground. And that was before I switched to #Kosher food and developed #gout. Today, I have more reasons, but people still want to force me.
Happy #Jewish American Heritage Month!
We present you with an interesting and possibly less discussed part of Jewish American heritage: the #kosher meat riots of 1902.
"On May 15, 20,000 protesters, mostly women, took to the streets to attack the butcher shops. They smashed shop windows, poured gasoline on the meat, lit it on fire and threw pieces of meat at police officers. By the end of the day, 85 people had been arrested, 75% of them women."
The sort of wonderfully weird thing that pops up in the kitchen if your other half is a #Yiddish student with a thing for online purchases and acrylic vitrines. 😃
BRILLO #kosher soap, made in Brooklyn possibly around the 1940s. Note the double lamed in imitation of the double L in "Brillo."
Though the product is OU-Pareve, two of the four bars have a red Star of David on them (for washing meat plates and cutlery) and two have a green star (for washing dairy items).
When I was a little kid, yes, I was very picky. There are tastes and textures that I super duper do not like.
Many of those type of foods, I learned to block just so I can eat them. This was after we experienced the 1997 Asian financial crisis and the 2000 dotCom crash. I had to learn to eat whatever is available.
There are still foods, fruits to be exact, that I still avoid and can't get myself to eat. An example is orange, and anything that looks like an orange fruit.
I highly prefer #umami, sweet, and salty tastes. Spicy are fine, but I'm on the lower end of the spicy range, higher than that, I can't and won't.
I'm fine with mixing food, but only to a certain degree and depends on how it was made (the balance of tastes for example). I'll step back eating strawberry + chocolate. But, if it's an ice shake, I'm fine with that mix.
Fish. I am very picky. I don't like most fish because of the taste and texture. My trick is to have a soy sauce or mayonnaise, and lots of rice, just so I won't taste it and won't feel the texture.
Now, that's me pre-gout and pre-kosher days. I now follo #Kosher food, and since I also have #gout, my food choices are further limited.
Regardless, if there is one thing constant, I tend to pick: chicken, ramen/ramyeon, #pancitCanton (Filipino noodles), mayonnaise (I avoid ketchup as much as possible), #pandesal or rice. If there is chicken #adobo and tinolang manok (Filipino chicken soup), I'll pick those.
What's important also is, umami taste. I avoid at all cost any food without #MSG. Food without MSG not only tastes bland, it tastes dead. There is no umami taste in those “MSG free” food.
I've heard rumor that the fascists have called today to be a "day of hate" against Jewish people.
As a response, does anyone around #LosAngeles have a favorite actually #Kosher restaurant along Pico boulevard? After the sun sets (and the restaurants re-open), I want to support my Jewish neighbors and get a really good dinner.
And if the rumors are false -- I STILL support my Jewish neighbors and want a really good dinner.
To be honest, I’m putting way too much pressure on myself to try to make #challah this Friday. This is a sort of #depression and #anxiety mix where I predict failure and then beat myself up about being useless.

16 January 1883 | A Polish Jew, Josef Goldkranz, was born in Tomaszów Lubelski. He was a kosher inspector. During the war he lived in Marseille.
In 1943 he was deported to Auschwitz and murdered in a gas chamber.

Cooking can be a source of connection to one’s culture and history, and this is particularly true of both Jewish cuisine and soul food. Michael Twitty on creating kosher soul food, and his recipe for Louisiana-style latkes. https://momentmag.com/michael-twittys-kosher-soul-food/
In #halakhah there never was a mandatory 6 hour wait time between eating milk and meat. That idea is a more recent (1500's) chumra חומרה (stringency.) People of course may follow this, but they should also know the history. Ashkenazi Orthodox insist on this waiting time as binding. Other Jews disagree.

One particular downside of awards season is when studios and networks send non-kosher food to those of us who keep a kosher kitchen. Outside of film circles, the large majority of my circle is Jewish and keeps kosher. Most of my improv friends are now in NY/LA and I can't just reach out to offer them free food. #Film #movies #tv #streaming #AwardsSeason #fyc #Jewish #Kosher
My Christian friend Christina is so excited for Yom Hodu. Her parents imported treyf marshmallows from Medinat Vatican.
Instead of normal #marshmallows with traditional marshmallow root, #vegan agar, or #kosher gelatin, treyf marshmallows use gelatin made from the skin, connective tissue, and bones of swine. So exotic!
Izzy's Brooklyn Smokehouse in Crown Heights
The legends are true!
This guy learned #barbecue from the masters in #Texas, but couldn't taste a drop of it until he built his own rig and imported some #kosher beef. Since then, he brought the hardware and techniques back to #NYC and is not mamesh lifting those sparks.
The only remaining question is when are they opening a branch in #Jerusalem?
And the #kosher version is even more delicious: leave out the cheese and instead of pork, use pastrami!
Friends who keep especially strictly #kosher: do you make separate grocery shopping trips for milchig and fleishig foods? Or buy them at the same time, and put them in separate bags?
This is not something that occurred to me to be curious about until just now, when I noticed that I had put ground beef next to cottage cheese in my shopping cart
