Killing the Matzoh Ball

vallevin | Feb 11, 2010 05:21 PM

Because my sister is non-gebrokts for Pesach and it breaks our collective heart over not having Dad's (a"h) matzoh balls for quite sometime now, my mother was determined to make a non-gebrokts matzoh ball.

What my mother has found has basically killed the matzoh ball for me. There is a recipe for a mock matzoh ball in Enlitened Kosher Cooking by Nechama Cohen, that uses raw ground chicken meat as the base for the dumpling. My 4 kids and my sisters 4 kids basically ate this at each lunch and dinner over the 3 day Yom Tov. Repetitive? Yes, (adults had a more varied menu) but they did not seem to mind and it was so much healthier, and while it was not exactly a matzoh, it was close enough to convince me never to do matzoh balls again.
