    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    These are the *best* and fluffiest matzo balls on the planet, matzo meal can be found in the Jewish or deli section of any major super market chain or in a deli store, store any leftover matzo meal in the fridge or freezer ---these really expand when simmering in the broth so make sure that you have lots of broth in the pot before adding them in :)

      The baking powder gave them an off, metallic flavor. They were huge and pillowy, but not tasty. (To other reviewers: matzo balls can be frozen, but will often be dry and mealy when reheated.)

      Yum, Yum, Yum! These matzo balls are so light and fluffy! I was lucky and had homemade chicken stock on hand. Thx. Kittencal for yet another great recipe! Oh, I would also ask, can the balls be frozen?

      These were terrific. Can they be frozen? I understand restaurants do that so they don't run out. Thanks for sharing. A hit, as always.
