When preparing for Passover only certain foods are allowed, so it is important to consult your local rabbi for an inventory these foods. Specific ingredients and goods are traditionally labeled as kosher for Passover. You may find that they have the Pesach sign stamped on them so they can be easily identified from regular kosher items. With rising costs of these specialized foods, you will need to set aside more money for this expense. This is a celebration of the flight of the Israelites and due to this any leavened food items, including products that contain barley, oats, rye and wheat. Additionally, this also means breads and pastries must be removed from your home.
It is to honor the Israelites cooking and eating of unleavened bread to totally cleansing your home of leavened goods during Passover. Foods that contain baking soda must also not be allowed to remain in the home or used at this time. Matzo is a type of unleavened bread that is chosen for consumption for this reason. To symbolize mortar and the Israelites’ life certain Passover items are bought and made for drinking and eating, such as; grape juice and red wine. Also, apples and peanuts are popular choices.
During Passover, the Seder plate is an important aspect of the food served during this time. The struggle of the Israelites during the Exodus is represented by a variety of foods. In addition to the red wine, grape juice, and Matzo, other mortar-like mixtures are also incorporated into this meal, for instance the neck meat of chicken and bitter vegetables. These food goods serve to illustrate the Lamb of God and also the bitterness endured of that time.
The extremely relevant event of the Jewish Passover required precise preparation of kosher Passover foods. Even when purchasing these food goods from specialized grocery retailers, it is imperative to examine the Seder foods they carry are legitimate kosher foods for Passover. This traditional Seder must be strictly adhered to in a cautiously gradual process of preparing and cooking to ensure the food is kosher, which has been overseen by a rabbi.
