    Mirj's Note:

    These make light and fluffy matzoh balls. If you want hard as a rock matzoh balls (also known as Jewish hand grenades) you'll have to look for a recipe somewhere else.

      Wow! Until last week my only experiences with matzoh balls came from a recipe on a matzoh flour box. Last week, DH was a bit under the weather and was craving Jewish deli style chicken soup with big chunks of carrots and matzoh balls. I found your recipe, made about half the recipe in 1 1/2 to 2 inch balls that were done in about 20 minutes. They were pillows instead of grenades! You need to re-name this recipe to "Mirjam's Marvelous, Matchless Matzoh Balls".

      Perfect! I halved the recipe, as I only needed it for 4 people for a seder, and we still had plenty left over! Lite and fluffy- just as advertised. And easy to make! I gave people two options for the soup: a light chicken broth from manischevitz, or Curried Pumpkin Soup (35411)- which was SO good with these matzoh balls!
