Pesach Questions

Dear Rabbi Simon, I have a few Pesach-related questions: Am I allowed to buy ready cut & peeled vegetables like carrots and butternut from regular supermarkets? Also, can I use my hostess trolley for Pesach (we use it every Shabbat for chametz)? It heats to about 80 C. If I am allowed to, what do I need to do to Kasher…

Ask the Rabbi: Quinoa on Pesach
Dear Rabbi Simon,
Where do you stand on quinoa (and the kitniyot ban) for Pesach?
Many thanks,
Dear Tzippy,
In line with other American authorities, I am in favour of quinoa. Although I reject completely the voices (mostly from Israel) seeking to abolish the ban on kitniyot entirely, IMO we do not need to include in the prohibition pseudo-grains that were unknown in the Old World until modern times. Best to buy with a Pesach hechsher though, to be free of any possible wheat contamination.
Rabbi Rashi Simon
