Passover always recharges my addiction to late night snacks of gefilte fish (and throw a little Frank's hot sauce on the top.) I grew up, nurtured not by home-cooked gefilte recipes--alas, my grandmother, who supposedly made a mean batch, died before I was born--but by beloved "family" jars (Rokeach, Manischevitz, et.)
The thing is--I still love the bottled stuff--my current favorite being Rokeach (no sugar--I hate them when they're sweet.) I once tried Citarella's home-made stuff. "They had the best," they promised. Uh uh. Didn't come near the joy of the bottled fish. I notice in a thread two years ago that Zabar's was suggested, so I'll definitely give them a try.
But--I welcome all suggestions as to where to find the best gefilte fish (bottled or fresh.) I know the "best" would be if I made it from scratch. But failing that, what would you recommend?
