    Sarah Chana's Note:

    One of our energetic shul members developed this variation of another shul's cholent recipe to feed our teeming masses. (Ok, they don't teem and they are not masses, but you get the idea.) Everyone loves it. I suspect it could easily be reduced for family size. I WANTED TO ADD TWO LOAVES OF FROZEN KISHKE TO THE INGREDIENT LIST BUT THE ZAAR DATABASE DOESN'T RECOGNIZE KISHKE AS A FOOD. (I know that many people feel the same way about it!) If you do add the kishke, cut it into 2" slices and add it at the end. It will sort of dissolve and be delicious. Lemme know how it goes.

      Excellent cholent! (although a tad salty for my tastes)
