I just got a copy of the Empire Anniversary Cookbook, filled with
oodles of unusual recipes. This one caught my eye, since I have
a ton of turkey in the freezer, and it should substitute well.
Gefilte Chicken/False Fish
"From Our Family to Yours"
3# chicken cutlets
5 large Bermuda onions
1/2 cup Farina
salt and pepper to taste
sugar to taste
Grind chicken, 2 onions, and piece of Matzo (to clear the grinder).
Mix with eggs, salt, pepper, and sugar. Add the farina. Dice
remaining 3 onions. Place in a large kettle, add salt, pepper, and
sugar. Bring to a boil and simmer for 5 minutes.
With a large soup spoon, make balls from the chicken mixture and place
into water, in one layer. Do not crowd! Let them cook until they
turn a whitish color. Move to the side of the kettle, and place more
balls onto the onions. Continue until all the mixture has been
cooked. Remove the balls to a container that can be covered after it
cools down. Strain the broth, reserving the liquid. Grind the onions
and add to the liquid. Refrigerate until everything is chilled.
Serve the balls covered with the sauce or the sauce in a gravy boat so
that each person can take as much as desired.
