A Taste of Nostalgia
Tales and recipes to nourish body and soul
By Rabbi Abraham J. Twerski and Judi Dick.

The recipe of life is more than add a bit of this and and dash of that ... our lives are filled with stories. A Taste of Nostalgia by Acclaimed author, Rabbi Abraham J. Twerski has interspersed Judi Dick's recipes with tales that will make you laugh, make you think, and nourish your spirit.

For example people had large families and small incomes, nevertheless the ingredients were of great quality. My mother said if you put in good things that is what you take out.

Makes 10-20 Side Dish Servings

For the Tzimmes:

In an 8-quart pot, place the flanken on the diced onions. Simmer over low heat 1-1 1/2 hours, until almost tender. Do not add water. The meat will release its own juices. When meat is nearly done, add the rest of the ingredients and water to cover. Any or all of the optional ingredients can be added at this point. Continue cooking for 1 hour until the vegetables are soft.

You can add a knaidel to the tzimmes about 45 minutes before vegetables are finished. Remove the meat, divide into serving size pieces and return to the tzimmes. If the mixture is too liquidy, dissolve 1 tablespoon flour in 1/3 cup cold water and stir into the tzimmes. Simmer until thickened.

For the Knaidel:

Sift the dry ingredients together. Add oil and water and mix thoroughly. Form this knaidel mixture into a rounded oblong. Put the knaidel into the tzimmes, tucking it next to the meat for the last 45 minutes. Make sure there is enough liquid for the knaidel to absorb and expand. If not, add water in small increments. Cover the pot and let cook for 45 minutes to 1 hour.
