Cholent (with Kishka) is a stew that has simmered over a very low flame or inside a slow oven or crock pot for many hours before being served on Shabbat (the Jewish Sabbath), so that Sabbath observant families can eat a hot meal without cooking on the Sabbath. Its main ingredients are beans, barley, potatoes, and meat, although there are as many cholent variations as there are families that make it! In Polish shtetls, uncooked cholent was brought to the local baker before sunset on Friday. He would put the mixture in his oven, which he always kept fired, and families would come to pick up their baked cholent Saturday morning.
