Foolproof matzo balls

AJC Staff

AJC Staff

If anyone is planning to a Passover Seder for tonight and still needs a matzo ball recipe that promises on a stack of Torahs to produce fluffy, light orbs of unleavened yumminess, look no further.

This recipe, which uses stiffly whipped egg white to leaven, has never let me down. No oil, no seltzer, no panicked injunction to never lift the lid or face matzo ball failure.

The accompanying story is here.

I’m a Goyam! My son’s mother, and to this day one of my best friends, is Jewish. I love the Jewish culture… particularly the food… well maybe not Gefilte fish so much. Anyway, as the cook in the family, I, since the early days of our marriage, have always made a good matzo ball soup. The soup itself is a no-brainer and I always, if I don’t say so myelf, NAIL it…. but the matzo balls are a different story. I always use a mix but there’s a distinct difference between Streits and Manischewitz… With Streits I get marbles and with M’s I get light fluffy, pillows (albeit round) of goodness… Go figure!
