  • You need to keep two different sets of dishes to serve your food. One for meat and one for dairy.
  • You will need two separate set of silverware, one for meat and one for dairy.
  • Your utensils for meat and for dairy need to be keep separate.
  • When storing meat and dairy in your refrigerator, make sure they do not touch.
  • Ideally you should use two separate stoves to prepare meat and dairy.
  • Also use sperate sets of pans to cook your meat and dairy.
  • Dairy and meat should not be cooked in the same oven. If you need to use it for both you must clean it thoroughly and wait 24 hours between cooking your meat and cooking your dairy.
  • It is recommended to use separate sinks for washing and preparing foods.

As with the kosher foods I have only included a few of the rules that govern a kosher kitchen.

      We have a fair amount of artichokes annually and now I know how to prepare in a different way. A much more creative way.
