Jew, please?

Help! I need a Jew!

Okay, well, not really a crisis, but on the Scavenger's Table, where people put food that they want to get rid of, someone put a big box of matzah, which I love--yummy bland crunchy crackers, great with peanut butter--and some sort of brown paste which I can't identify. It *tastes* like a meat product, savory but not very strongly flavored, like denatured potted meat spread, but it could be seasoned veggie paste, I don't know. Definately has onions or something that feels like onions.

I'm assuming, because of the close proximity to the crackers, that this is leftover from someone's Special Jew Dinner. I'm curious, it's quite tasty, but I hate not being able to place the flavor of something I'm eating, particularly when it's basically a paste.

Of course, this might be crackers with some totally non-Hebraic spread. I can't rule that out.

Could be from a passover dinner.
The Matzah also go great with eggs (Matzobrei)
As for the spread... Hmmm.. You can bet it's either beef or whitefish.
In fact, if it's Kosher, that's all it COULD be.. unless it's a bean spread.. but that wouldn't taste to meaty..

Ah. Chopped liver. They did a good job of hiding the flavor.

Nothing like leftover unidentified organ paste to tempt coworkers.

I'm not sure tempt is the proper verb here. Horrify or terrorize come to mind.

Yeah--best thing to do when dealing with ground organ paste is to not think too much about it.

I rewrote that sentence three times to make it un-Auliya-snicker-able.

Most likely "veggie liver", which is an eggplant pate', which tastes a little like a very mild chopped liver spread.

Re: Chopped liver
See, I didn't *want* chopped liver in my life. I have nothing against chopped liver, it's tastey enough, just rather low on the totem pole of food products in my life.

Mmm, schmaltz. I didn't know what shmaltz was, thank you for that bit of information :)

Nice to meet you!
