Meatball Matzo Soup

Posted by on 19 Jan 2008 | Tagged as: chores, cooking

I’ve been wanting to learn how to make Matzo ball soup, for some odd reason.
Finally decided to go for it this morning, though I decided to add some meatballs in there in case the matzo ones didn’t come out.

My chicken broth was in the crock pot for almost 48 hours. I added some broth ice cubes, but no additional water.

Did a bunch of research, and settled on the recipe that’s in my old copy of

    The Joy of Cooking

(old=1975. I thought it would be funny to buy a copy of that book that’s as old as I am.). I didn’t chill the mixture for a full hour, and I added a sprinkle of baking soda (my research unearthed that tip), but they came out GREAT! The meatballs were perfect, too. 🙂 Maybe next time I’ll make the matzo balls a little smaller–didn’t realize just how much they grow!

I only used about 1/3 of the meatballs I made. The rest were divided in half, put into baggies and chucked into the freezer.

Things to improve
