I wouldn't even know where in America to get such a thing
This thread is gonna be an epic fail :-DEnjoy your time in eretz yisroel and suffer through it without some things. After all its נקנת בייסורים
In america you can easily get the mold to make it at any hobby shop. Asking for my bil who wants to do it for some shtick at a wedding.
I don't mind a little suffering but no strawberries? I'm not sure I can hack that
Don't know about you but I haven't had fresh strawberries in YEARS due to the bug problem
heres a deal. you bring me fresh strawberries and ill show you how to clean them
Oh trust me I know how to clean them, but that don't make em kosher (HT R Belsky)
i don't know what he holds and I am definitely not one to argue with him, but I have spoken to many rabbanin in Israel about this and I have yet to find one that says its flat out not good
I just remembered that we used r moshe vayeh's book if he says something you can trust him 100% worth getting
How does R belsky assure the cleanliness of the frozen whole dole strawberries?
