How to Cook for Pesach in Advance without A Passover Kitchen

If you’re been a JLO reader for a while, you probably know that the BEST kept secret to preparing for Passover in advance it to create a mini Passover kitchen.

How to do it? It’s simple. This was my brainchild after I needed to go on a business trip 1 week before Pesach a couple of years ago. I felt bad leaving my husband with a lot of work so I made sure the house was clean so that all he would have to do was turn over the Kitchen. “What about the cooking?” you might ask?

Here’s where the Best kept secret was born. I purchased a crockpot to be used on Passover ONLY. I brought it down to my laundry room which contains a freezer, washer, dryer, and laundry sink.

I added a folding table, plugged in the crockpot, added a meat cutting board, a knife or two, and made use of my leftover Passover non-perishables, canned goods and spices.

Because I had already ordered my meat and cleaned a section of my freezer for Pesach, all I had to do was cook the meat in the crockpot, throw on some spices and perhaps some canned vegetables like potatoes (Think Brisket and potatos) or even fruit like pineapple (think Pineapple Chicken) and I let it cook for a few hours.

That was it! I froze most of my entrees before I had even left on my trip! Into aluminum tins the food went.

A caveat or two: If you don’t like the idea of using a crockpot, purchase an electric burner for yourself. Or, get a crockpot that doesn’t turn the food into mush. (Here’s the one that I use) Cut back on the cooking times-no, your food will not become cholent.
