Another one for the GF-ers!

So, to welcome their new Kosher section, Downtown Chabad in San Diego on Market and 14th Street will be having a Kosher Wine & Cheese tasting on Sunday, Dec 17th to celebrate Chanukah! Also, I’ll be cooking latkes for Temple Beth Shalom on Sunday for a party Sunday Night! Come try your favorite food blogger’s latkes! Love them! Enjoy them! BE the latkes!

Now, my wife has Japanese blood in her, and one of my favorite treats she makes is Mochi, For those that don’t know, Mochi is are Gluten-free doughy cookies that are a nice refreshing treat. My problem, as usual with Asian delights, is that there seemed to be no sweet rice flour. Well, Ener-G Foods comes to the rescue! ^^ It’s Kosher! It’s Pareve! It’s available at most alternative grocery stores!

So, we have our kosher sweet rice flour, let’s make some Mochi! We start by combining 2 & 1/2 Cups Water and 1 Cup White Sugar in a sauce pan, and bringing it to a rolling boil for a 4-5 minutes. Then turn down the heat and toss in 1 pd. Ener-G Foods Sweet Rice Flour (About 4/5ths of the box). Mix together with a fork until it shines. If you want it colored, at this point add 1/4 Teaspoon Food Coloring and mix it in completely. If the dough gets hard, feel free to add a little bit more hot water to the dough. Once mixed, remove it from heat and let it cool to a point you can touch it safely. Knead it for 2-3 minutes, then roll the dough out on a flat surface dusted with Corn Starch. and let cool completely. Once cool, cut into 1/4 in. circles of dough and roll into balls.

These can be sealed in a plastic container for a few days, and are excellent for holidays. My wife likes to make multi-colored mochi for holidays & celebrations. There are really easy to make, and tasty, to boot! I hope you enjoy making these as much as I enjoy eating them, and have a great day! Until next time, Shalom and Good Cooking!
