Okay. So I read the article, but couldn't find anything about preparation.
Yes, you bring it in the house kosher. You don't mix it with non-kosher foods. You use seperate vessels and utensils for serving, eating, etc.
But if you're using a pot to-well, let's say - make gravy, wash it and then use it to make quinoa, is the quinoa still kosher?

No; washing alone will not make a non-kosher pot a kosher pot.

In order to kosher a non-kosher pot, depending on what the pot is made of, it would have to be blow torched.

So, how do you prepare kosher food in a non-kosher kitchen. If most of the stuff is kosher I bring into my non-kosher home, by shear osmosis they become non-kosher, right? Not having a seperate kitchen/supplies and all I'd have to have them BYOKF, no?

I guess, you need separate pots you use just for that, no??

Aside from making a hard boiled egg (the egg is protected by its own shell and, even if boiled in a non-kosher pot, is still kosher) it would be best to bring in kosher prepared foods that are served in their own containers.

Many supermarkets, grocery stores or warehouse stores have double-wrapped frozen kosher meals, both pareve (neither meat nor dairy) and meat, that can be heated in a non-kosher microwave or oven. Then all you need would be plastic utensils.

It's almost impossible to have a simultaneous non-kosher and kosher kitchen: if the kosher pots are washed using a non-kosher scrubby in a non-kosher sink and they placed in a non-kosher dish drainer, they are no longer kosher.

People may keep kosher or not keep kosher, but people are neither kosher or non-kosher (in its original sense).

Interesting. But alittle confusing. In the sense that a people/rabbi has to qualify or bless (appropriate wording unknown) the food, facility, etc.



I have to leave for work now. Be back later to see furthur comments and understand alittle better.
Thanks for all your info.
