Knox gelatin is a "porcine" product. However, in the US other types are available, such as "ossein" which is the type used in most photographic emulsions, and fish glue.I daresay you're right Sandy... I've seen "kosher for passover" on packages of Knox, and just assumed it was normal Knox. Also, it was long ago, since I bought a humongous supply for paper sizing & haven't paid attention to it since. Now I'm supposing it was something else, kelp, or ossein, or whatever, "kosher for passover."
True, I don't know of any passover dishes that require gelatin... but then passover cooking isn't my specialty. (My specialty this week is bluefish... husband having brought home 20 monsters... Or did I mention that...?
