Hi Bubbe and Avrom,
What a wonderful show! When my Bubbe, who I called Nana, shared family traditional recipes,
she always left something out. This way her cooking was always the best!
One Passover, she had had horrible pain in her leg. I was a teenager at the time and she directed me
from the kitchen table on how to prepare the seder meal step by step. That’s the only way I know the complete recipe today. She had me roll tiny little matzo balls that cooked up very fluffy! My own mother doesn’t have all the secrets!
Okay here’s my question. My husband likes his matzo balls to be sinkers – just like his mother’s!
So please give me the “don’ts” of matzo balls. I want to keep my hubby happy.
BTW – I own all small video production company in Texas and I really enjoy watching the show!
Enjoyed reading your email. Do you mean by matzo ball sinkers, hard matzo balls?
Generally Matzo Balls are supposed to be fluffy, hard Matzo balls are the result of not letting the matzo meal and egg mixture rest for about 15 minutes.
This helps the matzo meal and the egg mixture blend together and makes matzo balls soft.
