"Crisco" for Passover

lukfam Mar 5, 2012 06:51 AM

I would like to know if there is a product similar to "crisco" that is kosher for passover - margarine will not work because of it's yellow color.

    The blocks of Passover margarine that I've always seen are a very close color match to Crisco, not yellowish at all.

      Yeah, Pesach margarine tends to be much whiter than regular. You can try coconut oil which is a solid at room temp but I dunno who makes it KP.

        What are you planning on using Crisco for? Is color the only consideration or are there cooking properties that you need to worry about?
