Some Yom Tov food suggestions
Many of the major brands of honey are Kosher certified – Capilano, Beechworth, Leabrook Farms, Archibald and Pureharvest. Recently, Leabrook developed its spreadable honey range, all Kosher certified and available in most supermarkets.
In the run up to the Yom Tov season, we’d like to take the opportunity to let people know about some new products and some not-so-new that will help with the Yom Tov cooking or just to sweeten things up.
Important Kashrus Advisory
Lentils, Beans and Peas
In response to recent enquiries and rumours regarding the Kosher status of LENTILS, BEANS, SPLIT PEAS etc we wish to inform Kosher consumers of the following information.
Various brands of packaged split peas and split lentils have been found to be polished with vegetable-based oil whose kosher status is, however, currently questionable and certainly not certified.
Re Kosher Approved Fruit Juices
Dear Kosher Consumer,
In the 2007 Kosher Australia Food Guide you will have noticed some significant changes to those juices that Kosher Australia approves as Kosher.
