Hey Shoshona

Yep, I was surprised at Schmaltz and Jewish going together since I grew up with the rendered pig/bacon fat version, often seasoned by browning onions and finally adding a pinch of marjoram.  YUM.  I served it at the first German feast I did WOW cant even remember when, at least 15 years ago (ask Baron Tuli about that ;-), and again at the German feast I did for Outlands Crown Tourney last September.  Funny, about half the little containers came back untouched, the other half were EMPTY.
