From: elayne@... (Elayne Cohen) Date: Wed, 10 Jul 1996 10:45:25 GMT As far as I can tell the first commercially made vegetarian "schmaltz" was made in South Africa by Debra's. Their advertising claimed that "even the chicken can't tell the difference", which to a certain extent is true.

Vegetarian SCHMALTZ is a good substitute. The product can easily be made at home. The following recipe comes from South Africa.

Put all the ingredients in a deep pot. Heat gently and cook on low heat until the onion is golden. strain and keep in refrigerator. Sometimes grated apple (about 350g/12 oz) is included.
