    Matzo Ball Soup
    I love the sound of this recipe and would like to make it for First Night Pesach - was just wondering if the soup and/or the matzo balls can be made in advance and frozen?

    The soup certainly can be frozen. I have no idea about the matzo balls - my sense is that they would be better made fresh and cooked with the soup as it is reheating.

    This covers freezing them as well as several other tips.

    "9 tips for perfect matzo ball soup
    April 7, 2011

    Adele Bark offers these tips for making perfect matzo balls.

    1 Check to be sure you have all of the ingredients and equipment before starting.

    2 Invest in a squeeze-handle ice cream (cookie batter) scoop to ensure equal-sized matzo balls. It also helps quicken the process.

    3 Refrigerate matzo mixture before forming balls.

    4 Work quickly when forming the matzo balls because heat from hands can soften them. Keep a bowl of very cold water nearby so you can rinse your hands and keep them cool.

    5 Do not cook matzo balls above a simmer. Boiling causes them to cook on the outside but the core will be hard. The goal is to make balls light and flavorful.

    6 Use a tight-fitting lid and keep the pot covered the entire time. Do not peek.

    7 Do not cook too many matzo balls at once. Never put more than 10 balls in one pot so they will have room to expand.

    8 Remove matzo balls one by one from hot water using a long-handled slotted spoon. This will prevent breakage. Place each matzo ball in a colander to cool.

    9 When freezing matzo balls, place cooled balls on a parchment paper-lined tray, leaving space so they don't stick to each other. Place tray in freezer. When completely frozen, store in freezer bags. Remove only as many as you want serve."
