    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    This is wonderful on a cold day --- I use my Kittencal's Best Chicken Stock/Broth (Crock Pot Option) for this that I keep in the freezer, canned low-sodium will do just fine but homemade broth is always the best and do not add any extra salt to the broth as the matzo balls already have plenty of salt in them already you may always add in some salt if needed at the end of cooking --- these matzo balls will almost double in size when simmering in the broth so do not reduce the amount of broth you may however increase if desired --- matzo meal may be found in the Jewish section of any major supermarket or sold in Jewish food stores.

      Your my favorite chef Kitten and you know it. You never let me down. First time making this kind of soup and it was real easy. I made your recipe of the homemade chicken broth and once this was made the rest was so easy and quick. I had used up my carrots in the broth and didn't have fresh ones to put in the soup. The flavor was out of this world for the balls. I made the balls a little smaller and put two in the bowl. Next time I will have to strain my broth twice I think to get it a bit more clearer. Thanks for sharing Kitten...your the best.

      Enjoyed by my family! I used Campbell's chicken broth, fresh carrots and added half a large onion, simmered the broth until carrots were tender crisp. I prepared half the amount of ingredients for the matzo balls and only 1/2 teaspoon of baking powder, did not add the garlic; the dough was quite thick. After it rested in the fridge it was very easy to form into balls. A very quick and easy matzo ball soup!

      This was very good. My husband, who isn't a soup lover, had seconds--a real mark of success! Thanks, Kittencal. We used turkey stock and chicken broth, and omitted the carrots, since we didn't have any. The garlic is an inspired touch.
