DIRECTIONS

  • Follow these instructions carefully.
  • Measure and mix dry ingredients into a bowl.
  • Individually break the eggs into a clear glass, discarding any with blood spots, and then pour into a second bowl.
  • Add oil or schmaltz (and water or broth for firm matzo balls) to the eggs and stir gently with a fork until the yolks are broken and the oil just mixed.
  • Pour egg mixture into the dry mixture and gently mix with the fork.
  • DO NOT OVER MIX.
  • Treat it like a muffin mixture; if you over mix they will be tough.
  • Place in the fridge for 1 hour.
  • Bring a large pot of water to a rolling boil on the stove.
  • After matzo ball mix has set, gently remove teaspoon fulls of the batter and roll into 1-2" balls and drop into the water.
  • When all the balls are in the water leave it to boil until all the balls float to the top, then lower the temperature to a rolling simmer for 40 minutes and your matzo balls will be ready.
  • DO NOT STIR AT ANY TIME.
  • The matzo balls may be removed from the water with a slotted spoon and served in soup, with a stew, as a side dish with gravy or placed on a cookie sheet and frozen covered for a later use.
