NYAFAT ???? Tue, 03/27/07 6:45 AM (permalink)

So ... I encountered this stuff at the grocery store.

Having no fear of the unknown, I bought some.

Anybody know what to do with it?

I am guessing it is some kind of a Crisco alternative?

    I think it is actually a Schmaltz alternative.

      yes, my mother used to use it on the rare occasions that she was out of schmaltz (= chicken fat fried in onions and rendered). It will give a very rich taste when used in preparation of a variety of dishes -- rice or grains (kasha, for example), or to saute meat that you are then going to cook slowly like pot roast, or chicken in a pot.

        Spread some of this faux chicken fat on rye bread, add a little salt and pepper. Delicious.

          Well, I'm pretty adventurous (culinarily), but I think I'll pass on this stuff !

          Thanks for the heads up, though.

            You could make a chicken fried tofu and vegenaise sandwich.

              I looked it up. It sounds like it might be healthy stuff!

              "Nyafat" is a brand name imitation schmaltz available in the kosher section of the supermarket. For those unfamiliar with it, it's an onion-flavored vegetable shortening and can be substituted for real schmaltz (rendered chicken fat). The advantages are (1) lower cost, (2) no cholesterol, (3) contains no animal products ("pareve").

                Sounds like trans-fat to me.

                  Is that the stuff that comes from rubber chickens??

                    I just mentioned this wonder substance elsewhere. It's highest and best use is for frying matzoh brei...if you haven't tried it, do your body a flavor!

                      I don't know but it looks like it could clog your ateries quite nicely.

                        That was the first thing that I thought of, also. Check the labeling to determine what types of fats are in this stuff. If it contains transfats, it is a very poor choice, in terms of your health.
