They call me Crisco because I'm fat in the can.

Does it last 8 nights?

Just because God didn't specifically say to not eat adulterated machinery lubricants doesn't make them kosher. Common sense should tell you that.

I was not aware that Crisco was originally formulated as a way to deal with excess cottonseed oil.  Huh.

My wife's family is all into the old-school Jewish recipes -- using schmaltz (or at the very least, not Crisco). Oh, and they use real chicken livers for chopped liver, as opposed to the "mock liver".

If anything, they use too much schmaltz in some recipes. That stuff plugs you up for a week.

Mock liver? What is that?

Wiki: "In April 2004, Smucker introduced "Crisco Zero Grams Trans Fat Per Serving All-Vegetable Shortening", which contained fully hydrogenated palm oil blended with liquid vegetable oils to yield a shortening much like the original Crisco."
Okay, so it's getting a little better. Hydrogenated oils are still unhealthy. Someone ruined treats for me when they said "Oreo cream is Crisco and sugar." I still enjoy them now and then; especially in ice cream, but I've never thought of them quite the same way as I did as a kid. (Oh, and they are also allowed to advertise "0" if it is less than half a gram per serving.)

There's no one recipe. It's making chopped liver but with liver substitutes (veggies). If you google "mock liver" you'll see tons of heathen healthy vegetarian substitutes. Maybe you'll find one you like, who am I to tell you how to eat?

I will say that one hack I don't mind is to the Jewish egg and onion recipe (LGT example; essentially a thick egg salad); my wife's family substitutes avocado for schmaltz [nb: the linked recipe uses mayo]. Avocado has plenty of fat in it, then you end up with a bright green and tasty egg salad.

I don't understand how Oreos are so popular. They *taste* like Crisco and sugar.

True dat. Grab a pack of the Thins, they taste like they used to. If you're like me you pull em apart and make doubles, so it's like a regular sized oreo then.

/been known to eat half a pack in one sitting
//refuse to eat the regular ones
///ESPECIALLY the double-stuffed that somehow is 3 times worse
