Light on the outside, a little dense in the middle, but that's the way I like them. Anyone have a gefilte fish recipe for striper??

First you catch a matzah, hold it up by its legs, get a sharp knife....





Ours are always light and fluffy -- she makes 'em from a mix.

what are Matzah Balls.
Simple explanation, Jewish dumplings. Usually served with chicken soup.

Made from matzah which is a hard dry cracker. Crumbled up and mixed with water and seasoning into a dough ball and cooked in broth.

Although it's a common dish in Jewish households it's especially important during Passover since Jews are required to remove all leavened products from their house during this week. All bread type foods are baked from flour certified to be non-leavened (Kosher for Passover) or made from crushed matzoh which has been made from the special flour.

This holiday commemorates the Isrealites flight from Egypt. They were in such a hurry to leave, they had to cook their bread before it could rise.

Been a big eating couple of days around here. It's kind of like a "Jewish Thanksgiving". Except that it lasts a week and requires that we give up most bread (leavened products) for the week. Overall, it's not that tough and it gets the family together around the dinner table without a television on and singing songs and telling stories.
