When I first discovered frozen cubes of ginger, garlic and herbs from Dorot at the local kosher market, I couldn’t believe it. What a great idea! It’s about time someone came out with an easy to use alternative to dried herbs or jarred garlic. How many times had I bought a huge bouquet of dill for chicken soup, only to find a bag of mush on the bottom of my fridge a few weeks later? These Dorot cubes give the taste of fresh garlic and herbs, without the chopping and the waste.
Dorot is named for the kibbutz in Israel where the idea was hatched. Like all great ideas, the inspiration for crushed garlic came as an answer to a clear consumer need. About 30 years ago one of the kibbutz members turned his home into the first experimental laboratory and worked on what would years later become Dorot's flagship product, frozen crushed garlic. The first plant for crushed garlic production was established in Kibbutz Dorot in 1992, in a caravan. And the rest, as they say—is history!
Dorot Garlic & Herbs come in 7 varieties, Crushed Garlic, Chopped Basil, Chopped Parsley, Chopped Cilantro, Crushed Ginger, Chopped Dill, and even Chopped Chili, no more “chilified” fingers burning your eyes. Dorot picks, chops and packages all its products while they are still fresh and tasty so they retain all their natural flavor. They are easy to use one cube at a time -- like miniature ice cubes and they last for 2 years in your freezer. But I’m guessing they won’t last long in yours!
On Passover, the challenge is adding vibrant flavors with so many restrictions and an off limits spice cabinet. Here are some fabulous kosher for Passover recipes from the Dorot chefs that will make your Passover herbalicious!
