SHABBAT RECIPE: Matzo Ball Soup
In the spirit of this week’s approaching Jewish Sabbath, we wanted to kick off our Chanukah (starts evening of December 2nd) recipe suggestions with a good old traditional Matzo Ball Soup by delish.com - Shabbat Shalom!
Cooking Time: Preparation time 2 hrs 10 mins, cooking time 45 mins
3 large eggs, beaten
1/4 cup schmaltz (dripping)
1/4 cup soda water
3/4 cup matzo meal
Freshly ground black pepper
8 cups good quality chicken stock
2 large carrots, cut into rounds
Freshly chopped dill, for garnish
Equipment Needed: Bowl, whisk, spoon, 2 large pots (with lids), ladle
In a large bowl combine eggs, schmaltz, and soda water. Stir in matzo meal, salt, and pepper. Cover and refrigerate until well chilled, at least 2 hours.
Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Using wet hands, shape matzo mixture into 6 large balls. Drop matzo balls in boiling water, cover and reduce heat to a simmer. Let simmer until cooked through, 30 to 35 minutes.
Meanwhile, warm chicken stock in a large pot with carrots. Season with salt, if necessary.
When matzo balls are finished remove from water with a slotted spoon and place into serving bowls. Ladle warmed chicken broth over and serve with dill.
