RE: [SORForum] Re: Alimentary prohibitions in Christianity
I am very happy to hear about the customary you mentioned. I have heard it from my mother though I did not observe such a customary in the current generation. I guess we are missing such a noble custom which showed our parent’s systems to live close to our Lord Jesus.
Any one have idea about similar practice followed during lent in middle east / Turkey?

I am unaware of the rules you allude to. However, in Kerala (India)
until about 75 years ago, it was customary at the beginning of the
periods of lent among the Syrian Orthodox to keep aside any vessels
used in the cooking of non-vegetarian food and use special
earthenware for lenten food preparation. I am not sure of the origins
of the practice and whether such a custom was indigenous or
originated from the church in the Near East .
