Yeah, If I'd seen that I would get it, now I wish I hadn't seen that thread. Gotta be a troll. No one would feed the person they kiss baby sh*t, would they?

I agree with the first half of this sentence, before the comma. The second half is patently untrue.

Last night I got a chicken, skinned it and threw the skin in a pan for schmaltz.

I pulled off the breast, legs, thighs and wings and put them in a marinade of sesame oil, soy sauce, scallions, ginger and garlic and put them on the "grill plate" on the stove.

Rest of the carcass I threw in a stock pot with some dill, onions, celery and carrots. Seperate project.

I roasted some frozen brussels sprouts (hey its freezer cleanout week) in some schmaltz, salt and pepper.

The chicken marinade I threw in a pot with some water and rice. If I ever do that again Im going to use less marinade and more water, but all in all it worked. The rice was a weird color, however.

Literally rendered chicken fat. Its used a lot in Jewish cooking in place of butter or pork fat. I cant say its just as good as pork fat and maintain self respect, but I can say it comes rather close.

Hmph! Sounds tasty. Now that you describe that it seems I remember watching someone on TV making matzo balls one time and they were using schmaltz in them. I also remember thinking "what the hell is he talking about" but now I know thanks to you.

Jewish huh? I'm surprised you didn't chime in on my lox thread, that's some good stuff right there!

I'm not Jewish myself but I dated enough Jewish girls to pick up a taste for their moms's cooking . I must have just not seen your lox thread! Since its difficult to smoke in NYC I make gravlax instead and eat it like one would lox. Salt cure vs. smoke cure .

Making schmaltz is pretty easy. Add the chicken skin and any leftover fat to a cold nonstick pan and put on medium heat with a little salt. Pour melted fat into a jar through a fine mesh strainer and you are done. I've heard of people adding onion to the pan, but personally the onion flavor isnt wanted.
