My sister, Joplin, invites me to start the new year with a delicious ancient Jewish feast–cholent. Cholent is a slow cooked stew of meat, vegetables and grains. The whole meal is cooked in one pot which should sit in the oven at a low heat for at least 8 hours. Joplin explains to me how back in the day, people would bring their pots with uncooked cholent to their local baker (who kept the oven running all the time) on Friday night and pick it up the next day for eating. The recipes for cholent vary; Joplin’s cholent contains beef, potatoes, carrots, kasha, wheat berries, chickpeas, kidney beans and whole eggs in their shell. This is an extremely delicious feast. The meat is falling off the bone and vegetables and grains are perfect. More cholent please!
