The Manischewitz folks sell over 1.5 million jars of gefilte fish internationally each year – almost one jar for every ten Jews in the world. “gefilte” fish is literally “stuffed” fish. Originally a food of the poor, the idea was to clean the whole fish, remove everything, add spices and fillers to the chopped meat, and stuff it back into the fish skin. Behold! A BIGGER fish!
On a scale of 1 to 10, nobody ever gives gefilte fish 2 through 9!
