Matzoh Balls

A matzoh ball is basically a dumpling made of crushed matzoh (matzoh meal). They can be made firm and heavy, with a slightly chewy texture, or very soft, with a melt-in-your-mouth lightness. My matzoh balls are fairly traditional, combining matzoh meal with some type of fat (preferably chicken fat) for richness and flavor, seltzer, and eggs to bind all the ingredients into a loose batter that thickens when chilled and produces light, fluffy balls that retain their shape when boiled. The onion and parsley in mine are not traditional, but I like mine that way. I prefer my soup very simple--just wonderfully rich homemade stock along with perfectly cooked soft matzoh balls that dissolve in your mouth. Truely...a soup for the soul...
