Editor’s Pick: Nomoo Cookies

“As a lover of all things sweet, I was certainly impressed with Nomoo Cookie Company. The company was started by David Bader, who often made cookies for his friends but many of them couldn’t enjoy them because they kept kosher. Bader shared his frustration with his colleague, Gretchen Dossa, whose daughter had a severe dairy allergy which forced her to rely on certified-kosher foods and to learn how to cook without dairy. Together, and with a team of long-time friends, the two started a gourmet, dairy-free, certified-kosher cookie line.

All of the cookies are baked to order without preservatives and ship the same day. Retail packaging consists of single or double packs and are sleeved for catering. The shelf life is about 10 days but if refrigerated, they can last up to one month.

Available in flavors such as Almond Oy, Big Chipper, Big Chipper with Walnuts, Choco-Lift, Flyin’ Hawaiian, Flyin’ Hawaiian with Pineapple, Ginger Slap, Oat-rageous, and Sugah Sugah, there’s certain to be a cookie to satisfy every palate.”

Jerusalem – Tnuva, Israel’s largest dairy is revising its controlled dairy prices, following the government’s price revision, and lowering the prices of a number of dairy items not subject to price control. A report in Globes, one of Israel’s foremost business publications, said that Tnuva cut its prices for milk, hard cheese, white cheese, sour cream, and sweet cream by up to 10%. It dropped its price for white cheese by 6.8%. The price is for marketing chains, not consumers, but the chains have said that they will pass along most of the price reductions. Shufersal, one of Israel’s largest supermarket chains immediately announced that it had its own plan for slashing dairy prices, its own brand. Tnuva is cutting prices on milk, hard cheese, sour cream and sweet cream. Other products whose price Tnuva is cutting includes fresh low-lactose milk, organic milk produced by Kibbutz Harduf, and long-life (UHT processed) milk. At a press conference Shufersal launched its new line of milk products that it says will be substantially cheaper than the government controlled price for the same products, and will create competition with the large dairies. Initially, the chain is launching milk, chocolate milk, and sweet cream produced by Ramat Hagolan Dairies, and imported cheese.
We look forward to actually seeing those lower prices!!

Although we are not Hungarian, our family loved sour cherry soup. Go know it was a Hungarian recipe and not one from the Ukraine whence hailed one side of our family. This recipe comes from THE NOSHER.


2 Tablespoons flour
1 1/2 cups sour cream
1 cinnamon stick
3 Tablespoons lemon juice
1/4 cup sugar
1 cup unsweetened sour or tart cherry juice
1 cup water
2 (1/2-inch) strips lemon zest
24 ounces or 2 jars pitted sour cherries in liquid


Strain liquid from jarred cherries into a saucepan (there should be about 2 1/2 cups liquid), reserving cherries. Add unsweetened sour cherry juice, water, lemon juice, sugar, cinnamon stick, and lemon zest. Bring to boil, reduce heat, and simmer for ten minutes.

While mixture is simmering, combine 1 cup sour cream and flour in a medium-sized bowl with a whisk and reserve. Remove cherry liquid from heat, remove lemon zest and cinnamon, and cool slightly, about three minutes.

Add 1/2 cup of the cooled cherry liquid to the flour mixture and whisk until smooth. Whisk in cooled cherry liquid until combined, add reserved cherries, and simmer for five minutes, or until slightly thickened.

Remove from heat and chill at least two hours. Ladle into bowls and top with additional sour cream, if desired.
