Rudolph The Red-Nosed Roast Beef
Do you know if reindeer sausage is kosher? It is made locally at Indian Valley Meats. Thank you.
Dear Heather Coats,
Reindeer is a kosher-type animal. But, like all kosher-type animals, it isn't actually kosher until it is ritually slaughtered and goes through a special process. If it doesn't go through this process, then it's not kosher. That's why all meat needs Rabbinic supervision.
If it's difficult in Anchorage to find meat that is actually kosher, I am including an address of a Rabbi in Anchorage who will be able to help you obtain kosher food (address omitted from published version).
