A Bachelor's Kitchen Guide
If you can’t tell the difference between your ice cubes and your ice cream, it’s time to throw BOTH out.

Frozen foods that have become an integral part of the defrosting problem in your freezer compartment will probably be spoiled (or wrecked anyway) by the time you pry them out with a kitchen knife.

In the Fridge:
When something starts pecking its way out of the shell, the egg is probably past its prime.

Milk is spoiled when it starts to look like yogurt. Yogurt is spoiled when it starts to look like cottage cheese. Cottage cheese is spoiled when it starts to look like regular cheese. Regular cheese is nothing but spoiled milk anyway – if you can dig down and still find something non-green, bon appetite!

If opening the refrigerator door causes stray animals from a three-block radius to congregate outside your house, toss the meat.

You know it is well beyond prime when you’re tempted to discard the Tupperware along with the food.

Most food cannot be kept longer than the average life span of a hamster. Keep a hamster in your refrigerator to gauge this.
On the Shelf:

Any canned goods that have become the size or shape of a softball should be disposed of… Very carefully.

Fresh potatoes do not have roots, branches, or dense, leafy undergrowth.

Anything that makes you gag is spoiled (except for leftovers from what you cooked for yourself last night).

Sesame seeds and Poppy seeds are the only officially acceptable ÒspotsÓ that should be seen on the surface of any loaf of bread. Fuzzy and hairy looking white or green growth areas are good indications that your bread has turned into a pharmaceutical laboratory experiment. You may wish to discard it at this time, depending on your interest in pharmaceuticals.

It is generally a good rule of thumb that cereal should be discarded when it is two years or longer beyond the expiration date, or when it will no longer fall out of the box by itself.

Flour is spoiled when it wiggles, or things fly out when you open it.

Normally eternal, pretzels may be discarded if they can no longer be picked up without falling apart. Otherwise, there’s nothing to stop you from eating a pretzel that the Pharaoh put down only 4000 years ago.

Raisins should not usually be harder than your teeth.

It never spoils. However, if you can’t chip off reasonable amounts from the block, maybe another box is in order, as fresh salt usually pours.

Most spices cannot die, they just fade away. They will be fine on your shelf, forever. Put them in your will.

If your grandmother made it, it is probably still good.
Expiration Dates:

This is not a marketing ploy to encourage you to throw away perfectly good food so that you’ll spend more on groceries. Even dry foods older than you are may be ready to replace. Perhaps you’d benefit by having a calendar in your kitchen.

Jim Gaffigan On Cake

Jewish Weapons Of Mass Destruction

A pancake-like structure not to be confused with anything the House of Pancakes would put out.. In a latka, the oil is in the pancake. It is made with potatoes, onions, eggs and matzo meal. Latkas can be eaten with apple sauce but NEVER with maple syrup (sorry Canada). There is a rumor that in the time of the Maccabees they lit a latka by mistake and it burned for eight days. What is certain is you will have heart burn for the same amount of time. It’s a GOOD thing.
The Israeli’s revenge for escaping slavery. It consists of a simple mix of flour and water – no eggs or flavor at all. When made well, it could actually taste like cardboard or Hardieplank. Its redeeming value is that it does fill you up and stays with you for a long time. However, it is recommended that you eat a few prunes soon after. Very soon after.
Kasha Varnishkes
One of the little-known delicacies which is even more difficult to pronounce than to cook.. It has nothing to do with varnish, but is basically a mixture of buckwheat and bow-tie macaroni (noodles). Why a bow-tie? Many sages discussed this and agreed that some Jewish mother decided that ‘You can’t come to the table without a tie’ or, G-d forbid ‘An elbow on my table?’
Not to be confused with the Germanic war machines: ‘blintzkreig’. Can you imagine the Jerusalem Post ’39 headlines: ‘Germans drop tons of cheese and blueberry blintzes over Poland – shortage of sour cream expected.’ Basically this is the Jewish answer to Crepe Suzette.
You know from Haggis? Well, this ain’t it. In the old days they would take an intestine and stuff it. Today we use parchment paper or plastic. And what do you stuff it with? Carrots, celery, onions, flour and spices. But the skill is not to cook it alone but to add it to the cholent (see below) and let it simmer for 24 hours until there is no chance whatsoever that there is any nutritional value left.
It sounds worse than it tastes. There is a Rabbinical debate on its origins. One Rabbi claims it began when a fortune cookie fell into his chicken soup. The other claims it started in an Italian restaurant. Either way it can be soft, hard, or soggy and the amount of meat inside depends on whether it is your mother or your mother-in-law who cooked it.
This combination of noxious gases had been the secret weapon of Jews for centuries. The unique combination of beans, barley, potatoes, and bones or meat is meant to stick to your ribs and anything else it comes into contact with. At a fancy Mexican restaurant (kosher of course) I once heard this comment from a youngster who had just had his first taste of Mexican fried beans: ‘What! Do they serve leftover cholent here too? A Jewish American Princess once came up with something original for guests (her first cooking attempt at the age of 25): she made cholent burgers for Sunday night supper. The guests never came back.
Gefilte Fish
A few years ago, an Israeli politician had problems with the filter in his fish pond and a few of them got rather stuck and mangled. His son (5 years old at the time) looked at them and asked ‘Is that why we call it ‘Ge-filtered Fish’?’ Originally, it was a carp stuffed with a minced fish and vegetable mixture. Today it usually comprises of small fish balls eaten with horse radish (‘chrain’) which is judged on its relative strength in bringing tears to your eyes at 100 paces.
How can we finish without the quintessential Jewish defense weapon, the bagel? Like most foods, there are legends surrounding the bagel although I don’t know any. There have been persistent rumors that the inventors of the bagel were the Norwegians who couldn’t get anyone to buy smoked lox. Think about it: Can you picture yourself eating smoked salmon or trout on white bread? Rye? A cracker? Naaa! The IDF research lab looked for something hard and almost indigestible which could take the spread of cream cheese and which doesn’t take up too much room on the desert-maneuvers-ration kit. And why the hole? The truth is that many philosophers believe the hole is the essence and the dough is only there for emphasis. It remains an eternal existential discussion topic.
