A brief trip to Old City/South Street on Saturday. I lost two piercings and NoKaOi Tiki Tattoo and Piercing fit me in for an appointment since Infinite Body Piercing is booked until the end of June (I have to cancel the appointment I had… I’m glad I went today, the helix was closing).On my way to the piercing place, I ran into Rob, owner of Crash Bang Boom and we chatted for a bit. It was nice chatting. I love that store and the owners.
After, I wandered around Old City and ended up at Reading Terminal Market before I went back to my aunt’s. Dog sitting for a week. Bought a Cornish hen, chicken fat for my gluten free Matzo balls, and brisket. This feast only cost me $15!
That night, I rendered the fat. My first time making schmaltz. Tastes like chicken soup and I’ll use it for soup. Next week I want to go back to get some more chicken fat along with the skin, and make the schmaltz for GF matzo balls.
Reddit’s Judaism sub gave me some good advice for the next time: maybe only a tablespoon or two of water, and let the onion sweat render the schmaltz. I can’t wait to give it a try. And I can’t wait to have matzo balls in the broth I made.
