Israeli rabbi presses to import kosher goose that tastes like pork

Israeli rabbi presses to import kosher goose that tastes like pork

JERUSALEM - Israel's chief rabbi is bringing home the bacon.

Yona Metzger's office says it is primed to allow import of an organic goose grown in Spain that tastes like pork.

Metzger says three non-Jewish chefs confirm its swinish flavour. Jewish dietary law strictly forbids eating pork. Metzger's office says there is no Jewish injunction against eating goose, no matter what it tastes like, as long as it is slaughtered according to Jewish ritual.

Secular Israelis have long enjoyed pork at non-kosher restaurants. "Kosher pork" would open new flavours to the observant.

I would think a lot of Jews in Israel do not eat any pork, but that is just a guess? If you wanted more information, I would suggest you send a question to the USA- CIA, as they would have those figures.

That said, there would be a world wide demand for the product , as there are Jews world-wide that observe the dietary laws.

There could be Muslims as well? I am not sure if they believe in the same no pork, but I would think that is a good chance-

My best friend is Jewish and she eats bacon, ham etc...so does her whole family. I have quite a few Jewish friends and they all eat pork.

Canada has a ton of geese just on the golf courses. Could be a business opportunity not just for the kosher market but for anyone who wanted what might be a leaner meat.

Goldeye absolutely rules when smoked. My parents catch fresh goldeye out in the country. Quite expensive in the stores.

They should try catching it from a lake or river.. its even better then
