Safest Choice Eggs are Kosher for Passover

Passover begins tonight (Monday, April18) at sunset and will continue for eight days until April 26. Passover is one of the most widely observed Jewish holidays and is probably the most food-centric. It starts with people gathering for the traditional seder meal and continues on throughout the week with family meals of matzo, hard-boiled eggs, fruits and vegetables, and treats such as macaroons and homemade candies.

For the duration of Passover no leavened bread is eaten, making Matzo (flat unleavened bread) the primary symbol of the holiday. That also means that many people celebrating the holiday stock up on eggs since most Passover desserts rely on eggs for leavening, instead of flour, making sponge cakes popular every year during this week.

Safest Choice™ pasteurized shell eggs are a smart egg option because they are certified Kosher by the Orthodox Union and food safety is important when sharing meals with family and friends. Safe eggs’ eliminate the worry of cross contamination and provide peace of mind when making recipes that call for raw eggs.

The blog Kosher Eye wrote about using Safest Choice™ during Passover and shared a number of recipes. And fans of Safest Choice™ use them for meringues, mousses and homemade mayonnaise they make ever year for Passover. In fact, the Rabbi that handles our certification uses our eggs in a family ice cream recipe shared here:

Rabbi’s Daughter’s Dairy-Free Ice Cream


3 Safest Choice pasteurized shell eggs (separated)

1/2 c. sugar (divided use)

1/4 c. oil

Beat egg whites, gradually add 1/4 c. sugar.

In separate bowl beat yolk, oil, water, sugar, cocoa and coffee. Fold whites into yolk mixture.

Then freeze.
