    My BFF/second Mom is and elderly Jewish lady who has taught me so much about Primal cooking since I converted her to this WOE. She loves it because she can bring out all the flavors of her childhood growing up in Harlem when it was a primarily Jewish ghetto. She is the one who got me over my squeamishness about offal and taught me how to cook brisket. She has lost a bunch of weight, gotten off an bunch of meds and had her pre-diabetes diagnosis reversed, all by getting back to these traditional foods. She used to get hypoglycemic attacks all the time and had to carry snacks with her "just in case". Now she IFs. She is the Jewish Grok's Grannie.

    No, they don't taste like matzoh at all. I would say it was kind of like a baked potato chip, but somehow better. I don't see why that wouldn't work, though it might not be the most cost effective way to go about it. Elana has a matzoh ball soup that utilizes almond flour, but ugh, I can't see that being an acceptable substitute (I'd rather grind down the matzoh bread).

    This is all about pate.

    Liver can also be made delicious through cooking with a boatload of bacon and onions, the trick there being to not cook the liver too long as it gets rubbery.

    Brains are wonderful scrambled up with eggs, onions, garlic. The brains already have a scrambled eggy sort of texture so they go really well together and end up tasting like egg flavored butter.

    Heart is best in the slow cooker with some red wine and onions. Also makes awesome jerk.

    I also slow cook tongue the same way. Peel and slice.

    I still haven't gotten past the squeam factor about kidneys however. Those stringy white things.....
